A 65-year-old woman saw off a 300-pound man with a well-practiced baseball bat swing when she caught him pulling at her car door handles in his boxer shorts.
She grabbed her bat and opened the door.
According to police the man, later identified as 37-year-old Antonio Mosley, charged her.
According to WGFL he is 5 feet 6 inches tall, but weighs 300 pounds.
Gainey, who was a softball player in high school, stood her ground and took up her batting stance.
"I took that bat and hit him upside the head like 'pi-yah!'" she told WGFL. "He said 'Ow!'"
Officers brought him to Gainey, who positively identified him, according to WGFL.
Gainey had called 911, and officers had tracked him down two hours later with a K-9 unit after finding his jeans, a shirt and one sock in the parking lot.
"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!'"
A Dramatic 911 Call in GeorgiaA 79-year-old woman saw off a burglar in neighboring Georgia with her pistol in February.
Whispering a prayer to the dispatcher one second, hollering a challenge the next as she fired a warning shot with her pistol, the unnamed woman was recorded in a dramatic midnight 911 call as she tackled a 20-year-old burglar.
When deputies arrived at the house in Jackson County, Georgia, on Feb. 12, they found a burglar cowering in the closet.
The homeowner heard someone trying to get in a window and went to her back door to look out to find a black male standing there.
“Okay, come on! I got something for you!" she shouts at one point.
As the 911 dispatcher tries to discourage her from confronting any attackers, the sound of a gunshot is heard.
According to WXIA, she had fired a pistol outside in the direction of the burglar, who then ran round to another door, and broke in.
As the dispatcher continues to reassure her that law enforcement is on the way, the woman said that she can hear the intruder upstairs, ransacking the rooms and apparently talking.
She waits for another two minutes in the kitchen, then her voice can be heard shouting “I’m waitin’ on ya’, come on! When you come down those stairs I’m gonna blow your damn brains out!”
Around eight minutes into the call, law enforcement entered the downstairs of the building, with Rogers now cowering upstairs.
He was charged with felony first-degree burglary and felony home invasion, and with misdemeanor criminal trespass.
