    An All-American Brawl

    Rome wasn't destroyed in a day. In Rome, New York, Black Friday 2011 took a twisted turn during one of their electronics sales. At Walmart, Robert Perry was arrested for disorderly conduct after taking part in a fight after midnight, which is exactly when the deal started.

    Two women, Laurie Underwood and Melinda Wishart, were taken to the hospital for back injuries after two fights broke out after midnight. When the clock struck 12, it was chaos, and the pushing and shoving landed at least one man in prison.

    Bargain Shoppers Send 11-Year-Old to Hospital

    Is a bargain worth trampling a precious 11-year-old girl?

    In 2013, Black Friday at a New Boston Walmart was a horror-filled shopping event thanks to crazed customers. HIPAA laws prohibit the release of the girl's name, but an 11-year-old female was trampled at the scene. 

    The injuries landed her in the hospital, where she was transported and later released. Luckily, the police were quick to respond, as the first call of a trampled child at Walmart came in at 7:56pm and they were on the scene by 8:01.

    Black Friday Shoppers Trample Girl

    Welcome to Muskegon, where every Black Friday, people swarm stores in stampedes. Evidently, it doesn't matter who is in your way; it could even be a teenage girl in a Wal-Mart who's victim to the shopping madness.

    On Black Friday 2011, a Wal-Mart SuperCenter became a scene of minor injuries for the girl. While there were rumors that she had been stabbed or shot, the truth was that people rushing to an electronic department sale knocked her over and stepped on her repeatedly. She was taken to the hospital.

    In Tennessee, 32-year-old Amy Serna had been waiting in line since 8pm. At a quarter to midnight, before the doors even opened at Toys R Us, the poor woman was completely trampled.

    Pinned between a shopping cart and a cement wall, Serna claims "There was no representative, no security." The mother of two went to the hospital were she was treated with an aching back, head injuries, and a swollen knee.

    Cop Ends Up in Hospital After Walmart Brawl

    A Rialto Walmart brawl landed a police officer in medical care on Black Friday 2013. 

    Thanksgiving week took an odd turn when three separate fights took place at the same Walmart in Rialto. When cops tried to break up one of those three fights, the two men brawling it out ended up breaking the cop's wrist. The injured officer was treated and released the same night, but one shopper said "This is my first Black Friday and my last."
