Grandma's hardcore. :woot:


Fort Worth, Texas (AP) --

Unholstering her cell phone from her bra, a tough-talking Texas woman chased down a purse snatcher in her car while calling 911. "Put it on the hood, now!" Val Renfro is heard yelling on the 911 recording after she got her man. "You give me my purse, right now."

Renfro, 65, from Arlington, had finished shopping Sunday at a Fort Worth office supply store and was getting into her car when a man shoved her twice, grabbed her purse and ran, according to a police report.

That's when she reached for her phone, which she always keeps tucked into her bra, and called 911.

While talking to the operator, Renfro drove after the fleeing man.

At one point, she apparently nudges the man with her car. The man tells her if she rolls down her window, he'll return the purse. "Like hell I will," she yells.

Onlookers eventually cornered the man near a movie theater.

Renfro said she later ran into the suspect at the police station, where he apologized to her. She said she accepted his apology.

"I don't have any animosity toward him," Renfro said. "Who am I to be the judge of him?"

Police identified the suspect as Ricky Lee Sample, 47. He remained in the Tarrant County Jail on Wednesday on a charge of aggravated robbery as well as a parole violation. His bail was set at $20,000.

"What the heck was that?

Looked like sorta a green turtle in a trench coat."
 
The crook was a wuss. She didn't even have a gun!
 
desperate times, desperate measures - the rich stay rich the poor get desperate.
 
Go Granny GO!! :up:

Dangerous on her part though, that guy could of had a gun.
 
Pretty sweet. Luckily this was in Texas. In a liberal state like Cali, he would sue her for using agressive force and attacking with a deadly weapon.

sadly, this is true. ...And he would have won.
