Mom Arrested for Using Stun Gun to Wake Teen Son up for Easter Church Service

April 03, 2018

One mother in Arizona is in trouble for quite the strange reason.


40-year-old Sharron Dobbins was arrested for using a stun gun to wake her son up for Easter Sunday church service.


“I said, ‘Get up! It’s Jesus’ Day!’” said Dobbins to Phoenix ABC Affiliate KNXV.


Phoenix police say that Dobbins “contact tazed her teenage son on the leg” to wake him up.



Dobbins admits that she did have a Taser in her hands but says she only sparked it and did not make contact with her son.




“I made the noise with the Taser, but I did not tase my son,” she said.


Police say that they found two marks on the teen’s leg which was enough evidence to take Dobbins into custody. She spent 12 hours in jail on Easter Sunday.


“He was like, ‘Mom, I’m calling the police.’ I said, ‘You can call the police, UPS, DPS whoever you want to call.’ Police were on the phone and I told the dispatcher, I told her, ‘You need to be with Jesus right now.’”


Dobbins was charged with one count of child abuse with intent to cause harm.


“I don’t think I did anything wrong because you’re supposed to put God first and that’s all I was trying to do is tell my kids to put God first,” said Dobbins.
