An Oregon pimp who used his Air Jordan sneakers to stomp a client's face is suing Nike for failing to warn him that its product was "potentially dangerous." Sirgiorgiro Clardy, who was sentenced to 100 years in prison, says the bulky Jordans should come with a warning label since they inflicted so much damage, and were deemed "dangerous weapons" by prosecutors. His sentence, Clardy said, had caused him "mental suffering."
