It’s probably not the smartest idea to transport a large flat-screen TV on the back of a scooter.

The two clumsy suspects allegedly stole a TV from a Walmart in Davie, Fla., but not before dropping it, according to local police.

As the butterfingered man tried hopping onto his partner’s wobbly scooter, he dropped the TV on the ground. The video then shows the dark-haired man picking it back up and exiting on the getaway scooter.
