SWANSEA, South Carolina (AP) – Police said a man launched into Mr Miyagi’s famous crane kick pose before stealing a purse at a gas station in South Carolina.
Swansea police posted phot-os from surveillance video on Facebook showing the man striking the pose from the 1984 film The Karate Kid.
Police said the man took the purse from a vehicle at a gas station last Saturday.
The photos show him holding the one-legged stance that Mr Miyagi taught Daniel LaRusso in the movie.
Police said the pose appears to be the man’s “unique” ritual.
Police said in a Tuesday post that the man has been identified and warrants are forthcoming.
News outlets report the man’s name and charges weren’t available on Wednesday morning.
