    Not even Michael Jordan in his prime could have driven through or dunked over this crowd.

    A teeming throng of more than 1,000 people massed outside the Arden Fair mall before midnight Tuesday – all for the chance to spend $175 on the new, retro-style Air Jordan Space Jam sneakers.

    But when the crowd surged past mall managers trying to hand out numbers for purchasing the shoes, off-duty police officers and mall security called for reinforcements.

    When they rushed the mall doors, with some pushing and shoving, Arden Fair shut down the midnight sales promotion and told everyone to go home – peacefully.

    Some 30 Sacramento police and California Highway Patrol officers helped disperse the crowd.

    "I made a decision not to have the shoe sale," said Steve Reed, head of security for Arden Fair. "We alleviated what could have been a very dangerous situation."
