A car thief threw a brick at the window of a car outside Gerry Brady's pub in Drogheda, but the brick bounced off the window and hit the car thief in the face, the Irish Independent reports.

"You should have heard the garda laughing when they saw the video," Brady said. "They were in stitches. Credit to them, they were straight out when we called and found the guy within minutes."

Here is a longer version of the video, with a much more dramatic build-up, and some fine editing apparently done by Brady. It is titled, "The Thick With The Brick."
