Orlando, Florida -- Don't cut in line at a Wal-Mart on the day after Thanksgiving. An Orlando TV station is reporting that security guards wrestled a man to the ground Friday morning after he cut in line to get a laptop computer that was on sale. They report that the man argued with other customers, then fought with the guards. One man told reporters that the laptops were being thrown into the air and people rushed toward them, collapsing on each other. Another man described the scene as crazy. The store's manager is referring questions to Wal-Mart Stores headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas. Officials there haven't made a comment. The discounted computers also caused a frenzy at a Wal-Mart in Renton, Washington. Extra police were called out to help control the crowd that pushed its way toward the electronics department and then pushed counters out of position as they tried to get those laptop computers.
