Surveillance footage showed the man walking up to the car, which belongs to the owner of a nearby pub, and throwing a small rock at the window. The glass didn't break, so he left and returned with a brick. When he chucked the brick at the window it bounced off and hit him square in the face, knocking him out.
The car's owner found him lying in the street. When the man came to, he threatened the owner and said he was going to burn down his pub. When the police arrived, he told officers that the pub owner beat him up, not realizing that surveillance cameras had caught the whole comical episode on tape.
