Not long ago we had the mom perfectly executing an open field tackle on a peeping Tom looking in her daughter's window. This week we head across the Pacific to the land down under to observe a grandmother laying out a purse thief.

To set the stage, the flip-flop wearing thief snagged the woman's purse off a table at a local tavern. She doesn't call for help, she doesn't turn to another patron to assist, and she doesn't let him go. Instead, she runs him down, grabs his shoulders and drops him.

As you'll see, it doesn't stop there. There's a headlock, a wrestling match, a shirt ripped off (it's his), and a dislodged flip-flop that gets chucked back at its owner. There's also a grandma that calmly walks away with her purse and a man who sheepishly drives away.

In the end, grandma got cracked ribs and some bruises. The man got arrested.
