You might as well call them the wet bandits. Two carjackers in Louisiana are probably still cleaning water out of their ears after they failed in their attempt to steal Michael Davis’ car.
Davis was washing his vehicle at around two in the morning (because what else are you going to do at 2 a.m.?) when he was approached by a man with a gun. The man demanded the keys to the car and all the money in Davis’ wallet.
But Davis obviously doesn’t give two Carson Daly’s about life, so he decided to fight back with the water hose, “He said ‘give me your keys and your money,’ and I said ‘what’d you say?’ and I took the sprayer and just sprayed it right in his face,” Davis told reporters. And then he heard the man’s friend try to creep up behind him, so he turned around and sprayed him too.
“I heard his friend try to run and get my backside so I turned around and sprayed him and hit him and they took off running. The whole situation to me was almost surreal.”
Davis explains that he believed the men would have shot him after they got his keys and money, so that’s why he felt like he had to do something. Plus, his disabled brother was in the car, and he wanted to protect him.
The incident has gone viral, thanks to the video from Davis’ dash cam. Most impressive, he never drops the cigarette out of his mouth. According to the report, the criminals haven’t been tracked down yet, but the search is on.
Meanwhile, executives at Warner Bros. noticed Davis was wearing a ‘Big Bang Theory’ t-shirt in the video, and they have offered to fly him out to watch a taping of the show.
So the next time someone threatens your life with a gun, make sure you fight back. It’s totally worth it, and it’ll always work out exactly like this.
