A would be burglar in Athens, Ohio got more than he bargained for when he walked into a man’s trailer and tried to steal from him, twice in a single day. The man had already stolen his video game system and when William Stanley got home, he had had enough.
Stanley recognized the man and chased him. The man ran out of the house and into the woods and Stanley didn’t even slow down. No, Stanley went to the man’s house, beat him down and hogtied him. William Stanley doesn’t take theft lightly.
At that point, and only at that point, Stanley contacted the police and found the thief unconscious, tied up, lying on his own floor. Stanley thinks the man should go to jail because if he doesn’t, he will most likely come back for revenge. As you can imagine, Stanley is not worried, at all.
It’s worth watching the video here just to see how much more awesome William Stanley is than anyone you know.
