Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: ‘World’s Chillest Man’ Lights Cigarette During Armed Robbery

Other top surveillance videos of the week include a dancing milkman, a prisoner giving birth in her jail cell, an out of control gas tanker and more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

I’ve been fortunate enough to have never been a victim of an armed robbery (knock on wood), but if I ever were, I don’t think I would be able to stay as calm as Tony Tovar.

Tovar was minding his own business at his favorite bar, Behrmann’s Tavern in St. Louis, when suddenly a man with a large rifle walked in and ordered everyone to the ground. Everyone complied… except Tovar.

The man then tries to grab Tovar’s phone, who refuses. The gunman gives up and walks behind the bar in search of money. Tovar then casually pulls out a pack of smokes and lights a cigarette. Tovar even claims he asked the gunman to get him a beer.

Also this week…

A violent, late night crash in Sacramento was caught on surveillance video. You can see a car speed towards an intersection, blow through the stop sign and smash into a passing SUV. The impact sends the car into a nearby house.

The footage shows that the speeding car was actually being chased by a red Camaro. The car rolls up to the scene of the crash, pulls a u-turn and then the driver gets out of the car and assaults the driver of the car that ran the stop sign.

Police say the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute that occurred in a different part of the city.

Make sure to check out the rest of this week’s top surveillance videos which include a failed smash and grab, a man clinging to a speeding SUV and much more!
