God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Pearl Fritts, a sassy 76-year-old churchgoing Nebraskan put up her dukes and chased off a would-be teenaged car thief. Who says force isn't the answer when dealing with bullies? Of course John Murtha would probably just hand over his keys.

From Fox News-Out There:
Look Out, This Old Broad Can Brawl

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 17-year-old Omaha girl who apparently tangled with a 76-year-old churchgoer has learned a lesson: Pick on someone your own age.

Pearl Fritts was dropping off her recycling when she heard someone behind her offering to help. When she refused assistance, Fritts says she got clobbered.

"She just slammed my head against that bin," Fritts said. "I was so shocked."

So shocked — and now angered — that she whipped around and put up her dukes.

"I think she was surprised that a little old, gray-haired lady with glasses would come around swinging," Fritts said.

The teenager was taller, Fritts said, but couldn't weigh more than 100 pounds.

The girl said she wanted Fritts' car, Fritts told police. Soon she realized Fritts wasn't about to give up the car and she ran. The girl was found and picked up at a nearby restaurant.
