Turn current Chrome Tab into a new window

Is it possible via Applescript or Java to turn the current Tab into a new Chrome Browser window?
I have already a way to do that, but there the tab will be newly loaded:

tell application "Google Chrome"
	tell active tab of front window
		set _url to its URL
	end tell
	close active tab of front window
	make new window
	set URL of active tab of window 1 to _url
end tell

I found out, there are already Chrome extensions and/or shortcuts that can do that, but maybe there is a script solution
