IRELAND — A would-be car thief was betrayed by his weapon of choice.

The surveillance video is from Ireland.

You see a man trying to use a rock to break the window of a parked Mercedes.

It doesn’t work.

Later, you see the same man return to the same car.

This time he throws a brick, which then bounces off the car, and hits the man in the head.

He’s knocked out on the road.

Someone came to help him, but he accused that person of attacking him.

But then police saw the video, and even they had to laugh.
