Man Charged For Allegedly Shooting At Another Man Over $4

(Memphis) A man is jail, after he shot at another man over four dollars.

“What kind of things can you get with four dollars?” asked WREG’s Elise Preston.

“Not too much, a loaf of bread, some eggs,” replied neighbor Renell Dewitt.

According to Memphis police, $4 is a big deal to Michael Brim. He fired bullets at someone over the few bucks.

“He shot at someone! Come on now I don’t believe that,” exclaimed Dewitt.

Police say Brim and a neighbor were outside his home on Kansas arguing over $4 the neighbor owed Brim, but the neighbor didn’t have the cash. That’s when Brim went inside his home, pulled out a rifle and shot at the man several times.

“4 dollars, Like 1,2,3,4! That man could walk up the street and got the 4 dollars from me,” expressed Dewitt.

Thankfully Brim’s aim wasn’t very good. The victim managed to hop into his car and drive away unharmed. He called police who arrested Brim Saturday.

Dewitt calls the shooting unbelievable.

“Had it been $400, had it been $400, would you be able to see that?” asked WREG’s Elise Preston.

“Probably yes, but shooting someone still,” said Dewitt.

Dewitt says she’s never seen Brim. It might be awhile before she does. He’s behind bars charged with aggravated assault and facing a $30,000 bond. That’s a lot of payments of $4.

      Maybe the money wasn’t the reason he shot at him the money probably just started the argument and what was said during that argument got the other man shot at… It’s still all stupidity, he can always get more money but he can’t get that time he spending in jail back …

    You have young White males with extreme killer mental issues. Shooting and Killing people by the masses over 0 dollars. Many don’t make the national news. IE (Google) Colten Jon Moore – Dallas,TX.

      For every mass shooting by a white person multiply that by 100, that’s how many total black killings there are.

      80 percent of murders in Memphis in 2013 were black on black. A mass shooting in CO or some other state has NOTHING to do with the rampant black on black crime in Memphis. Heck, my black friends want NO part of living in Memphis. Memphis is a dangerous place and WE all know it. Today is Monday, before the week is over, another black will shoot another black to death in Memphis. Do the right thing and get your family out of this city ASAP.

    when u be uneducated, you don’t knows the difference between fow dollars, fo-hundred dollars, or a million. So, you don’t need to be black, or live in the Memphis ghettos around Kansas street (though records/past events/statistics and other relevant facts indicate these characteristics seem to preclude criminal activity, welfare involvement, & this type of activity).

    The poor gentleman most likely grew up in the area, attended one of the local public schools that score in the bottom 10% academically, engaged in basement activities like those encountered at east side high, and did not make initiation into one of the area gangs. Therefore, one can only hypothesize that the events are just part of the normal daily routine demonstrated by residents for this area of Memphis.

    There are two kinds of rodents at large in Memphis. The rodents who do stupid stuff and make the news, and the rodents who get on blogging the score of which race is doing the most stupid stuff.

      Then there’s the third kind, the kind that hides its head in the sand, uses third grade grammar and states “Crime be everywhere yous go…it happen in every city”

  • dumbwhitesnowbeastaresavages

    Toby, you speak of the use of incorrect grammer but your post is full of punucation mistakes? Will you please put down the meth? You should also learn how a sime doj.gov search will debunk your figure of 11,000 murders. I doubt you are employed.

  • dumbwhitesnowbeastaresavages

    Toby, I am at work quickly typing on my phone so such mistkes are plausible. I can bet you are in some trailer unshaven and unbathed mad because some black dude used your wife and mum as a love juice dumpster. You show mental illness symptoms. Take your meds coward loser and please obtain employment.

      Black men are out of control. They are shooting each other over nothing. I am ashamed of the way my brothers are acting and maken the rest of us honest folks look bad. Im sad.

  • TWEETY

    I AM HIGHLY OFFENDED BY THE MOST OF THESE COMMENTS. NEVER EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.THE NEWS ALWAYS DOWNS THE SITUATION FOR THE SAKE OF A STORY…..ALL U HEARD WAS IT WAS ALLEGEDLY OVER $4

    • Don

      I’m with you tweety.
      These reporters just make up stuff like getting shot for 4 dollars. there is a rumor going around on Kansas St. that the amount was more like 400 billion dollars the guy had buried in his back yard.
      Are you happy now?

      • TWEETY

        SHOOTING WAS WRONG TRUE INDEED BUT THEY MAKE IT SOUND SO HOOD WHEN THAT WAS 9 TIMES UT OF 10 NOT THE REASON AT ALL

  • mike

    The man coulda had a family at home that needed food.and was in a stressful situation. Some people don’t play about things that belong to them regardless of the monetary value.he could of got caught at the worst time in his life and made a messed up decision which is something we all have done.thr title says a man shot a guy over 4 dollars now I’m sure there is more to the story..just my thoughts

        Nothing to see here, just part of the cultural enrichment that comes with diversity.

        To blacks, it doesn’t matter. Chicken wings, sneakers, rap music, disrespect, it’s all just part of being black. Besides, a chicken wing is way more valuable, so it make sense, just like tweety said.

  • Ghettoscum

    That’s normal for black folks, the have been known to kill over a slice of pizza, so 4 dollars is a big deal for them
