There's a reason they call it instant karma. A car thief in Ireland was attempting to break the window of a car when karma decided to show up and get even.

The car thief originally attempts to throw a rock or two at the window, which fails miserably. At that point, you would think the thief would give it a rest. Nope! The thief comes back later with heavier ammunition. This time, the thief is armed with a brick.

Here's where karma decided to step in. The man throws the brick and instead of standing to the side, stands right in front of the car window. The brick bounces off of the car and smacks the thief directly in the head, knocking him cold.

The entire episode was caught on video by a local pub owner's security camera to watch the whole hilarious scene unfold.

The police were nice enough to awaken the man and subsequently arrest him.
