Florida reporter and her crew got more than they bargained for Tuesday when they started asking questions about a local stripper.

The Brevard County television news crew was trying to get the scoop on how a 15-year-old girl wound up shaking her teen-aged booty for cash in a local club when they were attacked by an upset grandma.

Her weapon of choice: a garden hoe.

The woman cursed and swung the hoe violently at the intruders, striking the camera and sending the rest of the crew scrambling for cover. The cameraman kept rolling and captured the brutal assault.

This all started after the teen's mom called police Friday after getting a tip that her daughter may have been hitting the stripper pole when she was supposed to be hitting the books. The cops raided the strip club, named Playmates, and found the teen and another young girl, reported to be 17.

The 15-year-old told police that she thought stripping was a great way to make cash.

None of the reporters or camera crew were injured in the attack, but they learned a tried and true lesson: If you ask questions about a stripper, don't be surprised if you get hit by a hoe.
