BRICK­ING IT

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING CLOSER -

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.
