(USA TODAY) - After brutally beating a man with his Nike Jordan shoes, a pimp filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike for not providing a warning label that their shoes could be used as a dangerous weapon.
In June, Sirgiorgio Sanford Clardy, 26, of Portland, Ore., repeatedly stomped on the face of a client with his Jordan shoes when the man refused to pay Clardy's prostitute. The man required stitches and plastic surgery after the beating,The Oregonianreports.
The newspaper reports that the jury also found Clardy guilty of robbing the man and beating the 18-year-old woman he forced to work as his prostitute; her injuries were so severe that she bled from her ears.
Clardy, who is representing himself, is asking a Multnomah County judge to order Nike to put warning labels on all their "potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise."
Clardy handwrote a three-page complaint from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton where he is incarcerated, the newspaper reports.
The complaint says that Nike "failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction" that their shoes are a "potentially dangerous product."
