I love a grandma who don’t play and this grandmother just may be my new hero! Police in Texas City say Aretha Cardinal used her granddaughter’s scooter to defend herself against a pair of machete-wielding men who were wearing clown masks. The pair were trying to rob Cardinal and her husband, police said.

“You’re trying to rob us with a machete, it’s our life or your life and I’m not ready,” Cardinal told ABC.

Police say she and her husband, Joseph Nelson, were in the driveway of their home last week when the masked men approached them and placed a machete to Nelson’s throat.

Authorities say that’s when Nelson wrestled away the machete from one man while Cardinal grabbed her granddaughter’s scooter from the driveway and used it to strike the other robber. And as the men tried to get away, Cardinal used the scooter to smash out a window in their getaway car!

 “Any weapon is good for me if I can get you off of me and my husband that’s what I’mma do,” Cardinal said. “So I used the scooter. Broke it in half.”

Don't worry hubby did is part by chasing the robbers down with the machete they tried to rob him with.
