Men pepper-sprayed after jewelry deal in food court goes bad

March 13, 2012

Two men got pepper-sprayed near the restrooms in the Mayfair food court after a jewelry sale went bad Saturday.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

Two Milwaukee men, ages 26 and 34, were waiting in line to buy food when they were approached by a 68-year-old Milwaukee man, who asked if they were interested in buying jewelry. They moved to the area outside the restrooms, where one of the potential buyers slipped on a ring.

When he didn't pay, an argument ensued and the seller started feeling threatened. He sprayed the men and took off.

When the seller was found, he was intoxicated. His criminal record showed 46 past arrests.

The two potential buyers had a history of 11 arrests between them.

All of their rap sheets got a bit longer as they were all arrested for disorderly conduct.
