Gerry Brady owns the Pheasant Pub in Drogheda, Ireland. One night, he found a man lying unconscious next to his car near the pub. Brady thought that the man had been mugged. But CCTV footage told a different story.
The full video shows the man struggling for a long time to break into Brady's car. He threw rocks at the windows trying to break them, but the glass was too sturdy. So the frustrated suspect eventually heaved a brick at a car window.
The brick bounced off the car and hit the would-be thief in the head, knocking him unconscious.
Brady showed the video to the police, who found it hilarious. The Independent reports:
“When the Gardaí 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.”
“You should have heard the garda laughing when they saw the video. They were in stitches. Credit to them, they were straight out when we called and found the guy within minutes.”
