Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio A teen burglar in Kearns probably didn't think he'd wind up face down in the carpet struggling for his breath. He picked the wrong house.

The teenager tried to sneak out but didn't make it. Jennifer Hogan spotted him. "I just said, ‘That's enough. I'm not gonna be a victim. It's not gonna happen today,'" she explained.

So, she tripped him, but didn't stop there. "I grabbed him around the waist and just slammed him into the floor as hard as I humanly, possibly could," Hogan said.

And there was no mercy. "He said that, you know, he couldn't breathe; to which I told him, ‘Too bad. You lost that right when you broke in my house,'" Hogan said.

He was probably happy to see the cops.

Hogan thanks her ex's dad. She learned the take-down from him. Although, she does say she's distantly related to Hulk Hogan.
