VIDEO: Watch a would-be robber knock himself out with a brick in Louth

A car robbery didn’t go quite as planned for one man in Drogheda.

VIDEO: Watch a would-be robber knock himself out with a brick in Louth

When Gerry Brady, owner of the Pheasant pub in Drogheda, Co Louth, found an injured man lying near his Mercedes E Coupe car after he finished work he assumed he had been knocked down.

When the man came around he was insistant that he didn't want Mr. Brady and his partner to call an ambulance or gardaí, despite his claims that he was attacked.

The pair then realised what actually happened.

“My partner then noticed the damage to her car, I had a look at the Merc and could see dents on it. We got the cops and they took him away after we showed them the CCTV.

“We have the whole thing on CCTV, and it’s quite hilarious."

Mr. Brady has published the eight second CCTV footage on YouTube - and it's well worth a watch!
