Well now here comes a new development. Remember the days when people used to get attacked and even killed for their Nike Air Jordan’s? Well no longer are people just getting beat up FOR their Jordan’s, they are getting beat up with them.
Sirgiorgiro Clardy, 26, a Portland pimp was was wearing a pair of the Nike shoes when he decided to stomp a mudhole into the face of a customer that refused to pay for the services rendered by one of Clardy’s working girls. During the beating he also took the money from the john and for good measure beat the crap out of the 18-year-old girl who failed to collect the payment.
A jury found Clardy guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon (the Nike’s), robbery as well as the assault on the working girl. He was sentenced to 100 years in prison.
Here comes the part where the story gets fun.
Clardy claims that the assault was totally not his fault and could have been avoided if not for the failures of Nike chairman Phil Knight and his company. In his three page handwritten in jail complaint, the incarcerated pimp claims that Nike failed to properly warn consumers that their product could be used as a dangerous weapon.
Via The Oregonian:
“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product …” wrote Clardy, who is representing himself. “Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”
Clardy wrote that he’s tried to starve himself and kill himself multiple times.
He asks a Multnomah County judge to order Nike to affix warning labels to all their “potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise.”
In the past, Oregon defendants have been convicted of using a wide array of items or substances as dangerous weapons. The list includes boots, rope, a phone receiver, scalding hot water and HIV-infected blood. The “dangerous weapon” classification can spur longer prison sentences.
Clardy filed his suit this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court. Read More Here…
