Watford defender Tommie Hoban witnessed a crime today and it was very funny.

Hoban, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at youth level, watched on as a dim-witted burglar managed to knock himself out while fleeing the scene of his latest robbery.



The fact that he was trying to break into a home in broad daylight, with a lot of people around qualifies him to be included in the list of 'World's Dumbest Criminals'... but why didn't you get a video of it Tommie!

Hoban qualifies to play for Ireland through his Dublin-born mother and paternal Irish grandparents.
