A woman in Wisconsin was allegedly tased by her son during a domestic dispute on Mother’s day.
22-year-old Andrew Peterson, his girlfriend Colleen Parker, 20, and their child live with Peterson’s 43-year-old mother in Lone Rock.
In the afternoon on Mother’s day, Peterson, Parker, and their youngster were at home with his mom when he reportedly became frantic over misplacing his cell phone.
During his alleged frenzy over the lost electronic, Peterson reportedly grabbed a taser and approached his mother. The man allegedly held it to her neck and discharged it, causing the device to shock her.
Peterson, Parker, and their child left the home, and the alleged victim called the authorities to report the assault.
Deputies were sent to the scene, and since the suspects were no longer in the home they were unable to question them.
The trio was found in Richland Center, and the deputies asked Peterson what went on with him and his mother.
The man reportedly disclosed that he had tased his mom on the neck.
Peterson was taken into custody and booked into the Richland County jail. He is facing charges for suspicion of battery, disorderly conduct, and possession of an electronic weapon. An additional charge for bail jumping connected to an unrelated case against Peterson was also added.
When the authorities were speaking with Parker, the woman reportedly told them that she and Peterson’s mom had a heated encounter on May 6. Parker allegedly said she hit the woman in the face with a closed fist.
Parker, who has an extensive rap sheet, was also placed under arrest and booked into the county jail. She is expected to face charges for battery and disorderly conduct.
