Her mop is mightier than the knife


A brave woman used a mop to outpower two shoplifters who attacked her with a knife.

Two men walked into the store and took beer.

Their mistake: Before walking out, one of them turned and smiled at the woman who was mopping the floor.

"When he did, that made me a little bit mad," Teresa Fowler said in a South Carolina TV station report . "I whacked him as hard as I could."

Surveillance video shows one of the shoplifters pushed her to the ground. She got back up.  

"I just kept swinging," she said."Don't mess with me!"

She recovered the beer. Police arrested the men.

Watch the video.
