A half-naked, 300-pound Florida man allegedly tried to break into an elderly Gainesville woman's car Sunday morning in his boxers before ending up on the business end of her baseball bat.

Local law enforcement say that 5-foot, 6-inch, 300-pound Antonio Mosely was trying to break into the vehicle of 65-year-old Clarese Gainey early Sunday morning. When she saw that, she says she took a stand against the alleged burglar.

"I grab my bat, I brace myself, and I ease the door open," Gainey told WGFL-TV. After that, she says Mosely charged her. But she was ready for him.

"I took that bat and hit him upside the head like, 'Piyah!'" Ganey said. "He said, 'Ow!'"

Police said that Mosely then ran away to a mobile home park, where they apprehended him in a new pair of pants that had a bag of cocaine in the pocket. He's being held on charges of burglary and drug possession.

"He better be glad I didn't have a gun," Ganey said. "Because I would have shot him!"
