A 65-year-old woman in Gainesville, Florida, was able to fend off an attacker much bigger than her using only a baseball bat.
Clarese Gainey reportedly heard a noise at her front door and went to investigate. When she looked out the window, she saw a man in his boxers pulling at her car door handle and knocking on the window, attempting to break in. At this point, she decided to take matters into her own hands, grabbing a baseball bat and going outside.
Once she stepped outside, the 5’6″ 300 pounds man reportedly charged her. She took a clean swing with the bat, knocking him back and forcing him to run away, leaving his clothes behind. He was later found by a K-9 unit with cocaine in his possession.
