79-year-old hit with stun gun

‘A man who used a stun gun on his 79-year-old grandmother-in-law was arrested for investigation of domestic violence assault. [..]

The argument began Wednesday morning when his 7-month-old son tried to grab electrical wires, de Bruyn told The Columbian newspaper of Vancouver.

Fearing the boy would shock himself, he told the boy “no” and gave the child a swat on his bottom. De Bruyn said his grandmother-in-law told him that was child abuse and threatened to have the child taken away. He said he then told her to leave.

After arguing, he pulled out his Taser stun gun and told her he would use it on her if she didn’t leave within 60 seconds. He counted down, and when she didn’t leave, he shocked her on her right shoulder. She did not need medical attention.’
