Black Friday madness isn't just for big box stores: this year overeager Urban Outfitters shoppers wreaked havoc at an "overrated" sale in Santa Monica.Shoppers rushing into the store on the Third Street promenade smashed a tall glass door when the store opened around midnight, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The store was briefly shut down while the broken glass was cleaned up. Paramedics responded to the scene where they treated five people for cuts, but no one had to be transported to the hospital.
