armed robbery Air Jordan 8

A Brooklyn teenager lost part of his arm attempting to steal a pair of coveted Air Jordan 8 retro sneakers at gunpoint.

Zachary Sam, 17, arranged to meet Phillip Pierre, 39, at 12:30 p.m. on Friday after spotting Pierre's Craigslist.com ad for a pair of $190 Air Jordan retro 8 sneakers.

When Sam got into Pierre's gray SUV he allegedly produced a handgun and stole the coveted Air Jordans from Pierre.

Surveillance video in the area of E. 86th St. near Avenue M in Canarsie, Brooklyn, shows Sam exiting the SUV and calmly walking away.

But instead of driving off, Pierre made a U-turn and hit the gas. The SUV lunged forward and ran over the teenage thief, dragging him under the wheels for a short distance before slamming into a steel fence.

The impact with the fence tore Sam's right arm off between his elbow and wrist.

Video footage shows Sam squirming out from under the vehicle, leaving his hand, the gun, and the coveted Air Jordan's behind on the sidewalk.

After a brief scuffle with Pierre and a bystander, Sam ran down the street, his right sleeve flapping in the wind.

“Everyone was yelling ‘Come back! Your arm! You’re going to bleed out!’” said St. Fleur, an off-duty bus driver who was walking on Avenue M with his son.

Sam, bleeding profusely from his stump, boarded a city bus and demanded a bus card from the driver.

“Everyone (on the bus) was screaming because he didn’t have an arm,” St. Fleur told the NY Daily News.

The shocked driver refused to move the bus, allowing Pierre and others to catch up. The father-of-three snatched Sam off the bus, telling the driver "He tried to rob me!"

Sam, dizzy from massive blood loss, stumbled to his home on 86th Street and collapsed.

The teenager was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, where he was upgraded from critical condition to stable condition late Friday.

Doctors tried to reattach his hand but were unsuccessful.

When he recovers from his injuries, Sam faces charges of armed robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.

Pierre will also be charged -- with attempted murder.

Pierre's nephew defended his uncle's actions in an interview with an ABC News affiliate.

“If somebody puts a gun to your head, and you’re trying to get the cops to catch him, what would you do?” he told ABC 7. “You’re telling me just let him go?”

    All that drama for a pair of trainers

  • That’s Interesting

    Oh wow. He lost an arm over a pair of J's. I don't know how I feel about this. The teen was wrong and I can understand the man's strong reaction after having a GUN pointed to his head. However, I feel he should be charged with attempted murder. He was out of control when the threat was already gone. I'm not sure if the write up was intentionally funny, but I chuckled a few times while reading it. Perhaps that stump will remind him not to rob others in the future.

    I am so glad my son and nephews don't care about labels and brands, now my step son to be, that's another story. It's scary how much our men and boys love these shoes and the lengths they would go through to get them.

  • missmiami305

    I don't think he should be charged with attempted murder.

    So will the teen actually be charged with unarmed robbery?

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Running him down and over ??? Absolutely ridiculous ! The yanking him off the bus too? Yes the young thug was WRONG!!! However, he couldn't have thought of anything else other than run him over? My Goodness...

    This article is better than anything on TV right now! Wow!

    I love it when scum gets what they deserve, but if the police can't shoot a suspect in the back when he's fleeing the scene, a civilian can't run a mugger over after they have been robbed!

    By the way, Phillip Pierre is an idiot. Only a fool would invite a stranger from Craig's List into their car! Pierre and Sam are two dumb @$$es that deserve each other.

    This wasn't self-defense. The suspect was fleeing the scene. The threat was over. When Pierre used his vehicle as a weapon, he clearly intended to kill the suspect.

  • MookieFly

    That could work too. Would have to create a brand new category

  • JJ

    I agree with everything you said I thought I would be alone in finding some parts chuckle worthy. Mr. Pierre should definitely be charged as well though he didn't follow the guy, or flag down a cop while trailing him he ran him over intentionally and continued to fight and argue with the boy still bringing up them stupid shoes. Once he saw the boy lost his arm that should've been his number one concern not chasing him down on bus still heated that he stole from him and annoucing it to everyone Instead of saying let's get you to hospital.

    No he shouldn't be charged. He was angry, and would be da mned if somebody was going to stick him up.
    But -- the owner was stupid to meet somebody in his car on the street. They say when you swap purchases, you should go to the police station or a Starbucks, so the owner is suspicious. Were those HIS shoes? Why was he meeting the teen in his car?

    Well the obvious is clear and that is karma came back pretty strong on the young thief, just as it does for those in countries where they chop off body parts as punishment for theft., However it is a lesson for both men to realize how insignificant owning those sneakers are to their lives now. That materialistic mind set. So many tragic ironies in this.

    In Chicago, whenever a cop engages in a foot chase, he/she ALWAYS announces to dispatch that the suspect is "reaching for his waistband." That way, if they shoot an unarmed suspect, it appears justified.

    The fact that the VICTIM face charges will give teens excuse to rob.

    The law is protecting criminals also, especially in certain black neighborhood. I am sure if it was a WHITE neighborhood ANYWHERE IN MANATHAN, the Man(black or white) would be rewarded as a hero by the city, the teen had a gun and he is a threat to society POINT BLANK PERIOD.

    Canarsie use to be a good neighborhood, now it is as bad as East New York or Brownsville.

    Well, you don't really know how everybody reacts to something like that. Personally, if some attempts to carjack me, strong arm robbed me and I'm in my car my immidiate first defense is and will be running them over if I can. Just like a thug tried that back in college seeing a young foreign woman and thought I was an easy target. I only studied his body language as he approached me within closed aproximation to me right before he pull the gun in my window, I ran him over out of fear. I was shaken and 2 men stumped him and did a citizen arrest. I stopped about 5 miles down. I called the cops they said he was already apprehended, I was not charged with anything. Btw, I only had my backpacks with my school books?

    Exactly. I don't care what anyone says, Mr. Pierre's behavior also says a lot about him. Full of rage, and like you said, he refused to relent and had enough time to consider what he was doing. I hope the jury takes all that into account when Mr. Pierre is on trial...

    The thing about robbing people gun to the face and everything(or committing a crime in general), you never know how the victim will react. Some victims actually fight back and won. I'm sure the thug will be hesitant when executing his future crimes. That wasn't an 'innocent boy who didn't deserve to be ran over'. That was a full blown criminal executing a well carried crime with gun to the face and everything. His single mom should be happy his son didn't die. Imagine if the man had a fully loaded glock on him. It could've been much worse. Let's not blame the actual victim here.

    Morally I understand your perspective. Unfortunately that's not how the law is applied.

    Surveillance video in the area of E. 86th St. near Avenue M in Canarsie, Brooklyn, shows Sam exiting the SUV and calmly walking away.
    But "Instead of Driving Off," Pierre made a U-turn and hit the gas. The SUV lunged forward and ran over the teenage thief, dragging him under the wheels for a short distance before slamming into a steel fence.

    Therefore Pierre's overt physical actions or "guilty act" makes him liable for the crime in jurisdictions with due process.
    When it comes to who filed what charges who's to say. It's at the L.E.A or D.A discretion. Say hypothetically, Pierre was not originally charged. However, Sam's lawyer(s) seen the video and viewed Pierre's actions as intentional that would've resulted in Sam's death and decided to file separate criminal charges? It's legal.
    Pierre survived the robbery. The real "punch in the gut" has yet to come. When the ink dries on his criminal charge, personal injury & liability lawsuits are bound to follow.

  • M1AM1DADE

    Definitely would not recommend a bench trial... But with good lawyers and a jury of his "peers" hopefully he'll be found not guilty.

    Bars on the windows and a gun by our sides. Welcome to city living!

    He snapped for sure. That's going to be his defense I'm sure of it. Who knows the backstory of why he was selling those sneakers and to be robbed.... Going to be interesting to see what happens.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    TemporAry insanity. He'll get off ?. I bet this thug single mom right now is looking for kindergarten pic of her son to make 'my baby is innocent' sign

  • smartchickfl

    Lol at this whole comment???.

  • Fendi

    Thou shalt not steal. He learned that day.

    Good for him. Some blacks are just disgusting

    LOL Serves him right.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    me too!

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    FLATLINED!!!!!????

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    damn, I was hoping to read the part where this useless idiot died. Maybe next time. I would've ran his stupid ass over too.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He'll get off. A jury of his peers are as sick of this bs as the rest of us, so if it goes to trial, he'll get off. The guy pulled a gun and robbed him of his merchandise. He should've died.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I swear we said the same thing. I read Intro's post and replied, not knowing you made a similar comment.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nope, it's the drivers fault in his head. The teen is more than likely saying at least I didn't shoot him; I did a good thing cuz I could've just shot him. Next time, he'll shoot the person to make sure they don't come after him.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He'll get off. No jury will convict or give him time at all. This won't even make it to trial, trust me.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    MY Gawd, thank you. Don't come round here dat pattwhahwwa stuff.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I was having this discussion with family. If they were as brutal in this country, i.e. chop off the hand you stole with, cane you til your balls bleed, etc, crime rates would decline.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, I live in the hood, not deep, deep, but just enough to hate n*****. We all live in the same area, what do you think I have that you don't? Ask 100 prisoners doing time for armed robbery how much they got away with and I'm sure most will say a couple hundred or a damn cell phone.

    Work on your skills and/or education and work for the things you want out of life.

  • yelpforhelp

    It's too soon to say "That's what you get." Stealing a pair of shoes is ludicrous. The the theft does deeper for the victim. The perpetrator invades and steals the victims whole sense of security.

  • yelpforhelp

    When do they charge the victim? Thank God for Texas. That hoodlum would have never made it

  • yelpforhelp

    Now his thugging asz can't even tie shoes. He gone have to wear slide ins and flip flops from now on.

  • yelpforhelp

    In Texas you have the legal right to lay a mofo down for your own safety, your neighbors safety, your stuff, your neighbors stuff. That's why thugs try to hit businesses, automobile and houses without occupant are witnesses....and no color makes no difference. I believe you get an NRA card and a discount at a gun range with your birth certificate.

  • yelpforhelp

    ....or in case live the rest of your life with a stump. Who gone be his advocate?

  • yelpforhelp

    You are right. All is fair in love and war. JThug will always have a memory of what NOT to do and a reminder to thank God that he has a life to cham=nge.

  • yelpforhelp

    You forgot when them thug breeders insist that it wasn't him or somebody ELSE made him do it. That man should have laid him down.

  • yelpforhelp

    I hope they move to Texas.

  • yelpforhelp

    You couldn't have said it better-when someone threatens your security, it isn't just in that moment. There are ALWAYS long term effects.

  • yelpforhelp

    Stumpy for one.

  • yelpforhelp

    JThug must have channeled one of those countries.

  • yelpforhelp

    In Texas, we have the right to protect ourselves, our family, our property, our neighbor and our neighbors property. 85% of the time a grand jury isn't even convened.

  • yelpforhelp

    I will not laugh.........(I lied) I just laughed a whole lot, but is was on the inside.= though.

  • yelpforhelp

    You can not do harm to someone and then tell them how to react. It simply doesn't work like that.

  • Go Head With That

    LOL

  • the guest

    Hoodrats aren't civilized. Which is a shame. Because if hoodrats were civilized, they could organize their inner cities into independent trading centers.

    Poor, working class, and middle class white people have enriched their lives with the trading movement of eBay, craigslist, and consignment. There is a growing prejudice in the movement because poor blacks are robbing sellers instead of becoming prosperous traders themselves. So the wealth of this movement is increasingly excluding blacks.

    This bus taking sticking people up at gunpoint on foot hoodrat risked his life and lost an arm to steal $190 collector's merchandise just to wear. Civilized people save the $190 and purchase the collector's merchandise to resell for $250. Then buy the merchandise elsewhere and have money left over.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Criminals thrive on the idea that people won't fight back. It's psychological thing and a fear tactic. It works for the most part. Except sometimes the victims strike back and WON, too. There's no handbook on how one most react when someone do harm to you. I bet his single mom house is full of stolen stuff. This no innocent boy. This ain't no rookie criminal either. That was a very well executed ARMED robbery with premeditated intentions. He simply didn't expect the man to snap. The man will get off the charges.

  • whitty hutton

    I said the same thing above...shoulda let his sorry ass bleed out . now even more of our hard earned taxpayer dollars will be used to treat and stabilize his dumbass.

  • whitty hutton

    Just dumb!! ?????

  • whitty hutton

    Chile I been ???? since I first read it!

  • whitty hutton

    ???????????????

  • whitty hutton

    Yep. That's why you gotta take their sorry asses out when shyt like this happens cuz they'll try to enact revenge. I woulda aimed my tire for his damn head...flattened it like a damn pancake. The end.

  • stopthebs

    the guy should not have ran him over

  • Chi Chi Naija

    He deserved every bit of what happened to him. That 17 year old had sense. Life long learned lesson.

  • NeverSurprised

    I am so sick of the culture of criminality that is accepted as "normal" in black communities. When will we stop making excuses and start demanding that our OWN people obey the laws in our OWN communities, and stop acting as if preying on their OWN people is acceptable? I don't care if these predators lose an arm, a leg and any other body part if that's what it takes for them to learn to respect the property that members of their OWN race have worked hard for.

  • Branch Davidian

    I guess slot machines have competition for the title of "one-armed bandit" now. Vegas might sue this kid for copyright infringement

  • TheRealLee

    This is an awful situation all the way around. There won't be a day that this young man looks in the mirror to regret his bad decision and the victim of the crime now has to pay for that bad decision as well.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I would have just tapped him with my car. Hitting him enuf to where he couldn't move so I could call the cops. Not running him over. I dont think the victim should be charged. I'm a victim of a burglary and u literally black out from all common sense. That's prob what happened

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Good question

  • Gustavo Pereira

    civilized "intelligent" people. Sometimes i think its not a question of being evil or anti-social, but rather a matter of low IQ. Anyone with average mental capacity can figure out crime leads to short term gains but fucks you in the long term.

  • stanhope

    Little thief bastard....perhaps they will come out with a one sleeve Jordan jersey for his ass to steal.

  • stanhope

    Dear racist dimwit...did you not read that the genesis of the transaction was craiglist? Dummy it is not a question of IQ it is socialization. You can have an IQ of 170 but if someone drops your ass on Uranus you wont know the customs nor values and you might do something they might consider barbaric.

  • calledit78

    Hey give the kid a hand, I mean an arm, I mean a shoe! Cause he just made World's Dumbest Criminals Season 11.

  • calledit78

    This why you deal on ebay our at least meet @ the police station. duh

  • calledit78

    Until you find out the real price to make them was $5! Then you realize you just over paid for fool's gold!

  • yelpforhelp

    He ought to kick his own asz.

  • yelpforhelp

    My all time favorite is when these 3 thugs (2 brothers and one thugette) decided to do a home invasion on this 80 plus years old couple. The husband and wife waited until they got into their room and blasted all three. I bet all you could smell in the room was Vick's salve and gun powder. All three got to run out the house, but not far. One brother died, I forgot what happened to Thug Passion and the other brother.

  • NAYB

    This story is so crazy it doesn't even sound real.. Bet he won't do that dumb shit again

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    He can't he only got one arm

  • Chassidy Jackson

    Attempted murder?! Fawk that get a good lawyer, and beat that chit! This would've never happened if that petty arse ninja wouldn't been sticking people up for some dam shoes!

  • E Jai

    Learn English!

  • E Jai

    Yes..wouldn't you be mad? Yes ...and so was he. Case closed. This was not a fit if passion over something worth 200 dollars.

  • E Jai

    I know the driver has been charged...and I hope he's convicted and he goes to jail.

  • E Jai

    He was not physically harmed.

  • E Jai

    You must not be that intelligent..... Do you know how many people are in jail for this exact reason? Read a book and statistics. He definitely won't get off.

  • E Jai

    But you know how the law will....the driver should enjoy his jail cell. He deserves it.

  • E Jai

    He won't get off. That is not temporary insanity.

  • E Jai

    Gurl bye

  • E Jai

    People are truly stupid. Depending himself? I'm pretty sure you don't have a law degree.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Very good for the old couple. Thugs are low lives

  • E Jai

    Thank you for having sense!

  • E Jai

    Teach these people!

  • E Jai

    Cuz the driver probably is not a victim like everyone assumes. He's probably a thug too.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Did u read my first comment?! My harsh views on thieving thugs weren't meant to insult u or your loved ones by any means. It's unfortunate you took insults by my comment out all the commentors. I know what it's like to be victimized by thugs.Thank you for insulting my intelligence btw. I won't insult you back. There's no need to insult you as I don't know you at all. Enjoy your Vday, my friend. Have a great dinner??

  • Gustavo Pereira

    so, the problem was Craiglist? The victim is to blame? I dont get your point.

  • the guest

    In a civilized society people should not be held at gunpoint period. It is not racist to acknowledge that this hood rat should be accountable for his robbing someone.

  • the guest

    The problem is apologizing for a 17 year old who should be concerned with college exams not robbing someone. These young people will never heal if excuses are made for them.

  • the guest

    This young man knew darn well what he was doing was wrong or he would not have brought a gun. He was intelligent enough to peruse craigslist and plot on soneone. He just didnt care about anything but greed. He's taking the bus and robbing people on foot at gunpoint for sneakers.

  • yelpforhelp

    I hollered!!!!! when they said mama and papa pulled their his and hers shotguns from the side of the bed and started blasting.

  • yelpforhelp

    Emotionial, physiological hurt can be more damaging and almost always is. You can only physically die one time. I have been molested and raped and I survived, though I didn't physically die, spiritually and emotionally it is torture, not a day goes by that I don't think of it. I got a lifetime sentence.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Bye. U must live in the confines of the ghetto with no vision on how the hell to get out. Boy you n***** hate hearing other black people speak truth about the ghettos and/or improving their own quality of life for one reason or another. Don't do that. Live your life and I'm going to live mine.

  • whitty hutton

    Not Vicks salve n gun powder!! **falls out** ???

    i am not making any excuses.....i think he should be put down or jailed for ever. Thats for anyone that threatens peoples loves for material goods.

  • whitty hutton

    Y'all r so foolish!! ???

    Here, hold this grenade.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    the old couple say not tahdayyy lol. People work hard then you a got thug coming demanding ur belongings just because they say so or might flat out kill u and believe you 'cant' kill them because of the 'LAW' or their mama making signs saying 'their baby innocent' 'Black Lives Matters' or some other convenient racially&emotionally charged theme catch phrase. Then open a gofundme page to go party, sleep around then breed more thugs to rob society...

  • the guest

    My apologies for miscommunication. The last comment about apologists, I phrased rhetorically. I am in agreement with your perspective of civilized society, trading goods without violence, and accountability for thieves.

  • the guest

    These are precautions but Free Enterprise in capitalism means no one entity such as ebay should have a monopoly for sales and in a civilized society people should be able to trade goods without being subject to violence and theft.

  • the guest

    I will say this... Mr. Pierre HATED the calculating, predatory, duplicitous, coward lowlife who put a gun to head and robbed him.

  • the guest

    A person who is of their own choice and volition ghettoized in mentality to the parasitic extent that they exist to prey upon, leach off, target, violate, and use others including their own children for survival or "scavengeresque" gain. Hoodrats are by general definition uneducated, uncouth, inarticulate, and unversed in adequate common sense or social skills for accessing life beyond their elected circumstance.

    Pierre should not be charged. That thug got what was coming to him living a life of crime.

  • Aaron Spalding

    What the father did was wrong, legally self defense was out the window the minute the 17 year old left the car. That being said all it takes is on sympathetic juror and I think the prosecution is going to have a hard time getting an attempted murder conviction. Most likely, they'll offer him a plea to probation.
