A 65-year-old Florida woman used a baseball bat to chase away a 300-pound half-naked man.
She says he was trying to break into her car.
She also says he’s lucky she only had a bat.
It was early Sunday morning when Clarese Gainey said that she heard a noise outside her apartment.
She peeked out her window to see a large (police say 300-pound) man, pulling on her car door handle and knocking on its window attempting to break in, all while only wearing his boxers.
“So I grabbed my bat and I braced myself, I braced myself I eased the door open,” Gainey said.
That’s when Gainey says the 5’6″, 300-pound Antonio Mosely charged at her.
Little did he know she was a high school softball player, a 65-year-old slugger.
“I took that bat and hit him upside the head, said PIYAH, and he said OWW!” Gainey said.
That’s when police say Mosely ran to a nearby mobile home park, leaving behind his jeans, shirt, and a sock.
“He was in his drawers, he didn’t have no shoes on, no shirt or nothing,” Gainey said.
Police say a K9 unit tracked Mosely down inside a mobile home with new pants on, plus cocaine in his pocket.
Officers brought him back to Gainey to identify him.
“I said, that’s him right there, they said Ms. Gainey, he’s got a big knot on his head,” Gainey said.
Mosely was booked in the Alachua County Jail with two charges of burglary and drug possession.
“He better be glad I didn’t have a gun because I would have shot him. But this right here in my gun. Because I gone PIYAH,” she said.
