Adam's grandmother, Carolyn Taylor, saw the whole thing and called the police on the teens.
When deputy Trinicholas Carswell went to talk to the girl's parents about the incident, she saw Adam's shoes.
A few hours later, after Carswell asked Taylor what size shoes Adam wore, she returned with two other deputies and a pair of sneakers, The Macon Telegraph reported.
But the shoes weren't just any shoes. Adam had a new pair of Nike Air Jordans.
Adam has since thrown away the old tattered pair of shoes, and has cleaned the new kicks multiple times.
