Earlier today, the Daily Mail reported that a young pimp seeks to share blame for his recent assault conviction with sportswear company Nike. 26 year-old Sirgiorgiro Clardy is suing the company for not including warnings that Air Jordan sneakers could potentially be dangerous weapons when used to stomp on the face of a non-paying customer.

Clardy, who was also found guilty of robbery and forcing a woman into prostitution, is representing himself in the lawsuit. He penned the three-page long complaint to Nike from his current residence in the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution. He not only seeks $100 million dollars in compensation, but also the labeling of “potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise.”

“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potential dangerous product,” Clardy wrote. “Due to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”

The recent 2013 conviction marks Clady's 20th according to Raw Story. In 2012 he was arrested as part of a sex trafficking sting which led to the rescue of two underage girls. According to Metro, the victim of the assault needed nose surgery and stitches after Clardy stomped on his face in his Air Jordans.

Frank Colistro, a psychologist who testified against Clardy in his most recent trial described him as “born bad” and “an anti-social psychopath...100% likely to commit crimes again.”

“'I’ve evaluated serial murders, serial rapists, and I’m going to tell you very few of those people reach the [scores] we’re going to talk about here,' said Colistro. Clardy's lawyer was afraid of his client, and he had to wear a bag over his head to prevent him from spitting on people in court.

The lawsuit is expected to be served early next week to Nike's Beaverton headquarters. Clardy is serving a 100 year-long sentence.
