JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

A surge of anxious shoppers clambering for a tablet computer deal at a Johnson City Walmart on Thanksgiving night was captured on video that has gone viral.

This video shows Washington County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Larry Denny trying to control that crowd as people raced for the 8 p.m. deal on a $49 tablet. Two women were knocked down and stepped on, Denny said.

“We kept the crowd back while we checked them out,” Denny said Friday morning. “They rushed that display so fast, and once they knocked people down, they just kept on.”

Denny said the women were not seriously hurt.

A portion of the incident was caught on video that was then posted online. Media outlets, including the Huffington Post, picked up the video.

The Walmart is located on Browns Mill Road in Johnson City.

No arrests were made because Denny said it was difficult to identify members in the crowd.

Denny said there was no reason for the rush to get the computers because Walmart was giving people coupons to use to get the devices shipped to them after the local stock was depleted.
