Again and again he tries, to no avail. Just guessing, but ramming tempered automotive glass with a mop handle probably really hurts — the guy on the end of the handle, not the glass.
"If you're counting at home, that's 14 blows against the window with the mop!" Curley intones. "Now remember, the dirty part of the mop is underneath his arm! ... And again he strikes the window!"
The apparently intoxicated car prowler circles the Tacoma, then ultimately uses even poorer judgment and winds up knocked unconscious. KIRO says he's out cold for 17 minutes on the unedited version of the video before rousing himself and walking away. Perhaps invoking longtime Seattle Mariners play-by-play man Dave Niehaus, known for his use of "the grand salami," Curley shouts, "Oh my God! Somebody get some salami and cream cheese!"
The hapless car prowler may have no idea he's an Internet star, and let's hope for his sake that's it's not because of a traumatic brain injury. No, it's not funny for him, but if you've been the victim of a car prowl or package theft recently (I know a guy), this is all good stuff.
