Drunken vigilantes: Aussie lads foil robbery (VIDEO)
The video shot by Kane Wiblen starts with James Ross-Munroe talking about how he “busted a plugga” (Aussie slang for ‘broke his flip-flops’).
They then spot the alleged robbery in progress and decide to intervene by taking the getaway car’s keys, which had been left in the ignition.
After some fisticuffs. Ross-Munroe is seen chasing the suspect down a long, dark street, but unable to catch up.
He later joked on his Facebook page: “I chased them but because I'm fat they got away haha.”
Police have since arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the incident.
Ross-Munroe has become an unlikely hero with the video appearing on national news and being viewed online over half a million times.
He took to Facebook to say it all deserves a celebration, presumably with beer and a new pair of thongs.
