Senior Citizen Beats Half-Naked, 300-Pound Intruder with Baseball Bat
A Florida woman hit a home run against a half-naked intruder when she slugged him with a baseball bat Sunday morning. 65-year-old Clarese Gainey went after the 300 lb Antonio Mosely when he charged her after she discovered him breaking into her car! “He better be glad I didn’t have a gun,” Gainey said.
“Because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here (baseball bat). Because I gone ‘Pi-yow!'”
What Mosely did not know about his victim, is that grandma had been a High School softball player!
Besides the embarrassment of being whooped by grandma, Mosely, faces multiple counts including burglary and drug possession.
Police say that after Gainey beat him with her bat, Mosely ran to a nearby mobile home park. He had left behind his pants, shirt and a sock. He was then tracked inside a mobile home by a K-9 unit where police say he was wearing a new pair of pants. Mosely was caught with cocaine in its pocket as well.
ABC 7 reports the details after Gainey heard a noise outside her apartment:
As she looked out the window, she says she saw a man in his boxers pulling at her car door handle and knocking on the window, attempting to break in. Before calling police, she took matters into her own hands.
“I grab my bat, I brace myself and I ease the door open,” Gainey told WGFL.
That’s when police and Gainey say 5’6, 300 pound Antonio Mosely charged her.
“I took that bat and hit him upside the head like ‘pi-yah!’ He said ‘Ow!'”
Police say Mosely ran to a nearby mobile home park, leaving behind his pants, shirt and a sock.
“He was in his drawers, he didn’t have no shoes on, no shirt or nothing,” Gainey said.
Officers brought Mosely back to Gainey to identify him. She says she could easily identify him by not only his appearance, but the injury to his head.
Mosely is being held in the Alachua County Jail with two counts of burglary and drug possession.
“He better be glad I didn’t have a gun,” Gainey said. “Because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here (baseball bat). Because I gone ‘Pi-yow!'”
Mosely is being held in the Alachua County Jail.
Don’t we love it when grandma whoops on the bad guys? Just last February, a 79-year-old Georgia woman held a criminal at bay, shooting at him until police arrived.

She was inside her family’s farmhouse when she heard 20-year-old Hans Rogers breaking in. She called 911, then got her pistol.
For nearly 10 minutes, the woman and her gun took control of the home invasion while she gave the 911 dispatcher a play-by-play.
“Okay, come on up in here! I got something for you!” the woman said.
While she was on the phone, the woman was shooting toward , later telling her daughter to keep him away.
Rogers finally hid in a closet until deputies arrived.
“I’m waitin’ on ya, come on,” the woman said before a gunshot was heard. “Come on! Come on down here!”
“Ma’am, are you shootin’ at him again?” the dispatcher asked.
“Yes ma’am,” the homeowner replied.
The woman’s daughter told reporters later she was proud of her mother’s efforts.
“She didn’t allow herself to become a victim,” said the woman who, like her mother, did not want to be identified. “My mother’s a very strong woman. I know where I get my strength from, now. As a matter of fact, I think she’s a little stronger. I don’t know if I could have handled that situation as well as she did.”
