Thief throwing brick at window and getting hit in face is proof karma exists

Man Throws Brick at Car Window and Knocks Himself Out
Man Throws Brick at Car Window and Knocks Himself Out

A would-be thief in Ireland learned firsthand (or rather, "firstface") that crime doesn't pay when he threw a brick at a car window and it bounced back and knocked him out cold.

Surveillance video shows the man trying to break into a Mercedes using a rock. When that doesn't work, he moves to a brick -- but instead of smashing the window, he gets smashed in the face.

According to The Independent, "The man, from Drogheda, 35 miles north of Dublin, was found lying in a pool of his own blood by Gerry Brady -- the car's owner and landlord of the nearby Pheasant pub."

Gerry Brady posted the YouTube video that has since gone viral.

Brady told the Irish Independent, "He pulled himself up and said he wanted €50 for a taxi. I said 'Not a chance, I've to pay for a new window mate,' that's when he leaned in and told me he'd burn me out of the pub."

The man accused Brady of attacking him, but that didn't exactly stand up when cops showed the would-be thief the CCTV video of the failed robbery.

Brady said the cops were quite amused by the turn of events. "You should have heard (them) laughing when they saw the video," Brady told the Irish Independent. "They were in stitches. Credit to them, they were straight out when we called and found the guy within minutes."

The incident is still under investigation.
