Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville man has been arrested for allegedly pulling a gun on a man he met on Craigslist, and police say it was all over a pair of Air Jordans.

Police say Javonta Perkins contacted the seller saying he was interested in buying the shoes, and they agreed to meet outside Perkins' grandmother's house in Nashville to do the sale.

When the seller showed up with the shoes, police say Perkins pulled a gun on him and demanded him to turn them over.

The seller says he gave Perkins everything he had and then got away and called police.

Police say they knocked on the door to Perkins' grandmother's house and found him inside with the Air Jordans.

Perkins is charged with aggravated robbery.
