A convicted Portland, Ore. pimp is suing Nike for $100 million because he says they should include warning labels on Air Jordans.

Sirgiorgiro Clardy was involved in a brutal beating and robbery that earned him 100 years in prison. Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon.

He was wearing a pair of the popular basketball shoes when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy’s prostitute in June 2012.

Jurors early in 2013 found him guilty of second-degree assault for using his Jordans to beat the victims face to a pulp. The man required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose.

Clardy was also found guilty of robbing the john and beating the 18-year-old woman he forced to work as his prostitute. She was injured so badly that she bled from her ears.
