Car crime just isn’t clever, but neither it appears are the would- be thiefs. A car thief tried to throw a brick through a car window, only for it to bounce back and knock him clean out. The incident in Drogheda, Ireland, was caught on CCTV. The owner of the Mercedes car, Gerry Brady, who owns the nearby Pheasant pub, came out to investigate and saw the man lying in a pool of his own blood. “When the Gardaí [ local police] picked him up, he started claiming that I attacked him. He was still telling them that in the station when I came in with the footage of him getting knocked out by his own brick,” he said. “You should have heard the garda laughing when they saw the video. They were in stitches.
