A father has been charged with attempted murder after he ran over a teenager who stole a pair of sneakers from him, ripping the younger's arm off.
Phillip Pierre, 39, had arranged to meet Zachary Sam, 17, in Brooklyn, New York, at around 12.30pm on Friday in order to buy a $190 pair of Air Jordan 8 sneakers he advertised on Craigslist.
But when he arrived police say Sam climbed into Pierre's Honda Pilot, pulled out a revolver and took the sneakers before attempting to walk away.
CCTV of the incident, obtained by the New York Daily News, shows Pierre made a U-turn and driving headlong at Sam as he was on the sidewalk, pinning him under the wheels and slamming him into a metal fence, tearing part of his right arm off.
Despite his severe injuries, Sam can be seen squirming out from under the car and struggling with Pierre and several bystanders before fleeing up the street.
