PHOENIX – A Phoenix woman has been accused of using a "contact Taser" on a teenage boy to wake him up for church on Easter Sunday, USA Today reports.
According to court documents, 40-year-old Sharron Dobbins applied the Taser to the leg of a 17-year-old boy early Sunday morning in her Phoenix apartment near Central Avenue and Buckeye Road, Today reports.
An 18-year-old family member was a witness, court records show.
Dobbins told police that she "only sparked the Taser" to get the kids up for church on Easter and that she never used the Taser on anyone.
The teenager told officers that Dobbins used the Taser, but he did not want to testify against her. According to court documents, the teen did not complain of any pain but had two bumps on his leg where the Taser was used.
Dobbins was arrested on suspicion of one count of child abuse and has since been released from jail.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 16.
