Here we see a Russian man discover two guys stealing gas out of his Lada. How did he respond to the theft? He whipped out the trusty baseball bat.
Both CarScoops and I think that the Lada owner wasn't particularly surprised by the gas theft, given that there was a video camera trained on the spot, and the guy didn't take particularly long to confront the thieves. It looks to me like he knew it was coming.
The thieves, however, probably didn't expect to get their car bashed in.
