$1,000,000 Bond Set for Man Suspected of ESPN Death Threat Involving Nike LeBron X

The uproar and fervor caused by the announcement of the Nike LeBron X and the $270 USD price tag accompanying the release has resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly threatened bodily harm towards minors as a result. When the conversation on an ESPN thread alluded to violence as a result of people being robbed for the pricey sneakers, Eric Yee – a former Yale student – threatened that he was “watching children and wouldn’t mind killing them.” Seeing as how the ESPN threads are closely monitored, Bristol employees contacted the police who in turn arrested Yee for making terrorist threats. To put it in perspective, $1 million USD is the presumptive bail for murder in most states – but the bail was set that high because the threat involved children, Yee’s home’s proximity to two schools and several unregistered weapons that have been recovered after his arrest. What are your thoughts on inflated sneaker box prices and the effect they will have on the sneaker community? Sound off below.
