Stop, or my his mom will shoot!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight number one contender Urijah Faber recently gave a shout out to his mom, Suzanne, on his official Twitter account after she was able to apprehend a cat burglar by brandishing a weapon.

Turns out it was just a pellet gun.

"Happy B-day to my beautiful mom Suzanne today. Still feisty, just caught a burgler w a pellet gun. Held him off till the cops arrived ... he thought she was using a real gun ... She was house sitting, & found this High powered pellet gun. Looks dangerous enough"

Sgt. Laverne Hooks ain't got nothin' on "The California Cop."

See a pic of the realistic pistol she used in her crime-fighting caper, after the jump.

For something that doesn't shoot real bullets, that's a serious piece of hardware.
