Fight Breaks Out At Apple Store Where Homeless People Were Paid To Wait In Line For New iPhones

At least two men were arrested Friday after reportedly causing a scuffle in the line for the iPhone 5S and 5C at the Pasadena Apple Store.

1. Police arrested George Westbrook, 23, of Compton and Lamar Mitchell, 43, of Pasadena for fighting in the line at the Pasadena Apple Store on Friday as hundreds waited outside to get the new iPhone 5C and 5S, The L.A Times reports.

2. It appears at least one fight was caused by a man fighting with people he had hired to stand in line who were upset about their pay, Pasadena police say.

3. Homeless people were picked up last night at a Los Angeles shelter in a van and promised $40 to wait in line overnight for the new phones at the Pasadena store. As fighting broke out, some told police they were not paid what they were promised.
