Shoplifter In Georgia Taken Down By Shopping Cart

Police in Peachtree City, GA got an assist on taking down a shoplifter from a good Samaritan and his very accurate shopping cart toss. They released the video of the wild chase in a Wal Mart parking lot.

Peachtree Police put the blooper video on their Facebook page writing, "Again, while we are eternally grateful for this citizen's quick thinking and impeccable timing, we never encourage anybody to intervene in a police situation. If the decision is made to do so, please consider the safety of yourself and all those around you as a priority. Enjoy the video and share away!".

They cautioned people from taking this type of action, even though it was helpful. It could potentially put innocent people in danger. Paramedics showed up on scene but the suspect was uninjured. Not quite the getaway he was hoping for. Now he's probably big joke in prison when they all see the evening news of his capture. #FAIL
