Three strikes and you're out, literally in this case. CCTV footage in County Louth, Ireland, shows a would-be car thief hurling a piece of concrete at a car window, only to have it bounce back, hit him in the head, and knock him out cold, reports the Irish Examiner. Though it's not seen in the video, it was actually his third try. After a smaller stone didn't work the first two times, the man got the concrete block. The car's owner called police after finding the injured man—who claimed to have been beaten in a fight—and police took him into custody. (More weird crimes stories.)
