Great-Grandma Uses Baseball Bat to Fend Off 300-Pound Car Thief

A Great-Grandma Uses a Baseball Bat to Fend Off a 300-Pound Car Thief

There's a 65-year-old woman named Clarese Gainey who lives in Gainesville, Florida. She's a great-grandma. And back in high school, she played softball. That last detail is important.

Because in the middle of the night on Sunday, she heard a noise outside of her apartment. And she saw a 300-pound guy who was just wearing underwear trying to break into her car.

So she opened her door and yelled at him . . . and he charged at her.

Fortunately, she had a baseball bat. So when he got close, she WHACKED him in the head.

She says, quote, "I took that bat and hit him upside the head like 'Pi-yow!' and he said, 'Oww!'"

He took off running into a trailer park nearby. The cops were able to track him down, and it turns out he's a 37-year-old guy named Antonio Mosley. 

He had cocaine on him when they found him, so he was arrested for burglary and drug possession.
