Man Turns High-Pressure Sprayer on Wannabe Carjackers

Armed men washed up as epic fail is captured on dashcam

A pair of armed men were forced to clean up their acts during a failed early-morning carjacking attempt at a Louisiana car wash, which was recorded by the intended victim’s dashcam.

Michael Davis was washing his new Honda at the self-serve Oasis Car Wash in Shreveport around 2 a.m. when a man emerged from around a corner and pointed a gun at his head.

After the armed man demanded his keys and cash, Davis sprang into action to defend himself and his brother, blasting the assailant in the face with the high-pressure sprayer he’d been using on his car.

As the man began to retreat, a second suspect came at Davis, and he too got a cold shower before turning tail, receiving a few whacks from the washer on his backside for good measure.

Davis — who kept a cigarette in his mouth throughout the encounter — called the whole situation “surreal” and said he doesn’t regret his decision to fight back against his attackers.

“If they would’ve taken my keys and my money they probably would have shot me anyway,” he told KSLA 12. “Plus I had my disabled veteran brother in the car and they could’ve done something to him as well.”

Guess crime isn’t always a dirty business after all.
