Florida woman stuns husband with Taser after he asked for divorce, deputies say
Pamela Carr, 69, accused of stunning husband several times at close range, says she acted in self-defense
CLEARWATER, Fla. – A Florida woman responded to her husband's request for a separation by shocking him with a stun gun, authorities said.
Pamela Carr, 69, was arrested Sunday at her Clearwater mobile home and charged with aggravated domestic battery, a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report said.
Carr and her husband got into an argument Sunday morning after he told her he wanted to end their marriage of nine years, the report said. At some point, Carr pulled out a Taser and stunned her husband several times at close range, rather than shooting him with barbed darts, investigators said.
Deputies said Carr admitted to stunning her husband but claimed she acted in self-defense.
Carr was released from jail Monday on $1,000 and ordered to stay away from her husband. She'll be allowed one visit with a law enforcement escort to retrieve her belongings from the Serendipity mobile home community.
Carr was being represented by the Public Defender’s Office. A spokeswoman said they don’t generally comment on active cases.
