  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta man was robbed of his shoes at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon in the 1700 block of Wrightsboro Road, according to a report filed with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Department.

William Daniel told deputies he was walking along Wrightsboro Road about 3 p.m. when a gray Honda Accord with two men inside pulled up beside him.

The driver asked Daniel if he had any money. When Daniel said no, the driver pulled out a gun, pointed it at him and demanded his Fila tennis shoes. Daniel complied, and the suspects drove away.

Wonder

if I wore flip flops when I go to Richmond County, I would be safe from being robbed. I guess the only way you can be safe is go naked!

$300

Are these Fila tennis shoes the $300 variety that has been in the news recently?

We have "lame" little punks

We have "lame" little punks in RC. The problem is that these little knotheads will kill you for a pair of cheap "lame" tennis shoes.

Which is why I wear shoes AND carry a gun when I go anywhere in the "City of Augusta".

Our state law now discourages locking up young "lame" thieves. Shooting them is still a valid option. Thank you state legislature.
