We Both Decided We Could Take Him': Would-Be Carjacker Messes With the Wrong Guys, Ends Up in Hospital


“I didn’t feel like giving it up to him that day."

Ed Sneddon and Kevin Luebke were chatting as they walked to their cars after a meeting in Alpharetta, Georgia, last week — then someone came up to the businessmen and made three requests.

“He says to us, ‘Would you please give me your keys, your cellphone and some money,’” Luebke told WSB-TV. “He lifts up his shirt and shows us a gun.”

Sneddon said his reaction was instantaneous.

“I didn’t feel like giving it up to him that day,” he told WSB. “Kevin and I are both hockey players and we both decided we could take him.”

So Sneddon said he lobbed his car keys to the stranger's feet — but when the would-be carjacker tried to pick them up, Sneddon kicked him. Then the pair tackled the perp.

"Ed was on top of the guy and I was on top of Ed holding the guy down to the asphalt,” Luebke told WSB.

Luebke told the station Sneddon had a grip on the gun so it couldn't be fired; police said it turned out to be a BB gun.

The suspect is Jason Lappe, 41, of Atlanta, police said; he's charged with armed robbery as well as weapons and drug charges. He was in the hospital, WSB reported Thursday.
