Brave mom Monique Lawless jumps on Walmart thieves' car

Here’s one Walmart shopper who goes above and beyond. Single mom Monique Lawless, who was in the checkout line at a Houston Walmart, saw three men stealing beer and leaving the store.

Lawless sprang into action to run after the thieves, who got into their car to speed away from the store.

Monique Lawless didn’t hesitate, jumping on top of the the thieves’ car and trying to kick at the windshield. Watch the video below!

Lawless explained the risky move, saying that she didn’t expect a sane person to drive off with another person on their car. She said they were laughing at her the whole time, but the laugh was on them in the end.

She slid off the car when she heard them start it, grabbing at the door handle, but they sped off. She was thrust face first into the parking lot and thankfully she only suffered black eyes.

In the end, the thieves were caught by police, thanks to her heroic efforts!

The entire “Walmart hero mom” sequence of events was captured on surveillance video, allowing the police to identify the car and nab the thieves.

Would you go to those extremes to stop thieves? What about the onlookers in the parking lot? She said the people in the parking lot were “stunned,” but called 911.

Lawless noted that “No one was doing anything,” and said she sprang to action because the thieves were so “arrogant… it just infuriated me.”

Score another one for moms!
