Police: Woman Zaps Self, Brother With Stun Gun

Associated Press

October 01, 2010

NORTH EAST, Pa. (AP) – Police said an Erie-area woman somehow managed to zap both herself and her brother with a stun gun during a drunken dispute. Darlene Newara, 45, will have a hearing Oct. 18 on charges including driving under the influence, disorderly conduct for fighting, and public drunkenness in the Aug. 8 incident.

State police said they responded to a disturbance outside an Erie-area store about 6 p.m. to find that Newara had been arguing with her brother and stunned him with the device, then accidentally shocked herself with it.

Police said she was intoxicated and had several unopened bottles of liquor in the vehicle with her three sons, who were not hurt.

The Associated Press could not immediately locate a listed phone for Newara.

    Drunk Drivers are scum of the earth, they play with the lives of people. I'm tired of hearing every day that a drunk driver "killed a mother of 3 and her baby girl' or "kills entire family," or "kills wife and daughters leaving husband in critical condition.". Yea just imagine how you'd feel waking up to that in the hospital room before you drive drunk. Charge her, with all you can.
