After being married for nine years, Pamela Jane Carr, 68, was one day confronted by her husband with news she apparently wasn’t prepared to handle. Her husband, Thomas Burke, 73, told her he was leaving her, reports the New York Post. An alleged fight broke out between the two and that is when Carr allegedly “pulled out a Taser and dry stunned him several times.”
While Carr later admitted to police that she did tase her husband, she also added that she did it out of self-defense. Carr was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic battery and was released after posting $1,000 bond. As a result of the incident, Carr was barred from contacting her husband and was permitted one visit to her home with a law enforcement escort to retrieve her belongings.
