It may sound like a fake headline someone made up as a "Louisiana Man" joke, but this one really happened.
According to the Daily Mail, a New Orleans man walked out on Christmas day to find someone stealing his car in broad daylight. He was carrying a pot of gumbo and wound up throwing it at the windshield. The thief tried to run him down, but the man jumped onto the hood and reached in through the sunroof to fight the man behind the wheel.
The suspect slipped out of the SUV and took off in a waiting getaway car. The victim suffered no serious injuries. He told local WDSU News that there were probably better decisions he could have made, but he's fed up with crime in the city.
