Last week, a grandma in Florida used a baseball bat to fend off a half-naked man who was attempting to steal her car.
Clarese Gainey said she heard a noise outside her apartment, so picked up her bat and went to investigate.
"'I grabbed my bat, I braced myself, and I eased the door open," she told WGFL.
Outside, the 65-year-old said she discovered a 300lb man in nothing but his underpants trying to break into her car. After the man spotted her, she said that he charged in her direction.
The former high school softball player said: "I took that bat and hit him upside the head like, 'pi-yah!' He said, 'Ow!'"
The man, Antonio Mosley, then fled the scene, leaving behind his trousers, shirt and a sock, which the police K9 unit were able to use to track him down to a nearby mobile home park. When officers found him, Mosley was said to be wearing a new pair of trousers with cocaine in the pocket.
Mosely was held in Alachua County Jail and was charged with two counts of burglary and drug possession.
