When Clarese Gainey, 65, a great-grandmother from Florida, looked out her window and spotted a man, wearing only his boxers, attempting to break into her car, which she calls the "green goblin."
Before she called the police, according to WGLF, she grabbed her trusty baseball bat.
In advice she should tell her great-grandchildren not to abide by, as it could be very dangerous, she said, "I grab my bat, I brace myself, and I ease the door open."
Then, the 300-pound 37-year-old suspect, Antonio Mosely, started to charge at her.
"I took that bat and hit him upside the head like 'pi-yah!'" Gainey recalls. "He said, 'Ow!'"
Gainey's wallop was enough to send the would-be burglar running, sans the pants, shirt and sock (singular) he left behind.
Mosely sought shelter at a nearby mobile home park, where a K-9 unit traced him. There, he was wearing a new pair of pants — and this pair had cocaine in the pocket. (Which, if they weren't his pants, is quite the bout of bad luck.

Officers brought the suspect to Gainey so she could identify him, an easy job, she claims, as she recognized her bat's handy work on Mosely's head.
Mosely is being held in the Alachua County Jail. He faces two counts of burglary and drug possession.
"He better be glad I didn't have a gun, because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here," Gainey said alluding to her bat, "Because I gone 'Pi-yow!'"
