(WESH) A Florida Walmart manager went on a wild ride after chasing suspected beer thieves and jumping in the back of their truck Monday.

The manager, Mike Dawson, said the thieves stole 12 cases of Budweiser and Bud Light from his Titusville store.

Dawson caught them and jumped in the back of the truck for 15 miles, throwing beer out of the truck to try to get the attention of other drivers.

"One time they tried to beat me up, and I fought with them and lost my glasses. The second time was like in the back woods somewhere, and I'm like, 'I'm not getting out for you to run me over,'" he said.
