An elderly woman answered her door only to find a 300-pound man standing in her driveway. He attempted to force his way into her car, so she decided to show him that she was the wrong lady to mess with that day.
Clarese Gainey, an elderly Florida resident, protected herself from this thug.
In the early morning, Gainey heard strange noises outside her apartment. She went to her window and caught a glimpse of what was making the noise.
According to WGFL, Gainey saw a large male figure wearing only boxers attempting to break into her car. Antonio Mosely was the invader. Before Gainey called the police, she knew she had to do something on her own.
“I grab my bat, I brace myself, and I ease the door open,” Gainey said. “I took that bat and hit him upside the head like ‘pi-yah!’ He said ‘Ow!’”
Truth Tent reported:
After serving as Gainey’s batting practice, Mosely realized he was no match for this elderly victim. Immediately after sustaining a blow to the head, the half-naked attacker frantically fled to a nearby mobile home park, leaving behind his pants, shirt, and a sock.
Seeing that her property was no longer under threat, Gainey causally called the police to report that she had fought off the failed intruder. Using a K-9 unit to track down the suspect, the police found Mosely inside a mobile home. Oddly enough, he was wearing a new pair of pants with cocaine in the pocket when they apprehended him.
Gainey was delighted to identify her attacker in order for the police to issue the proper charges. She explained that she could not only easily recognize his face but reiterated that the lump on his head was a dead giveaway.
“I said, ‘That’s him right there,” Gainey told police. “They said, ‘Miss Gainey, he’s got a big knot on his head.”
“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 was arrested and charged with attempted burglary to an occupied dwelling, attempted unarmed burglary to an unoccupied conveyance, and possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $15,000.
Recently, there have been a lot of stories circling around about people defending and protecting themselves from would-be intruders or thieves.
Gainey shows that everyone needs to be armed in some way, for the unfortunate day that they may have to defend themselves against a criminal.
The cops cannot always get to you right away, which is why our right to defend ourselves is so important and worth fighting for.
