A Florida woman did not take it well when her husband of nine years attempted to end the couple’s relationship.
Pamela Carr, 69, was arrested on Sunday at her home in Clearwater, The Associated Press reported, citing a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report.
According to authorities, Carr used a stun gun on Thomas Burke after he said they should end their nearly decade-long marriage.
Investigators said that after Burke made the declaration, his wife pulled out a Taser and stunned him at close range. She did not shoot Burke with the barbed darts.

Officers called to the scene did not believe Carr when she claimed to have acted in self-defense, according to CBS affiliate WTSP.
Carr was charged with aggravated domestic battery and released Monday on a $1,000 bond.
Women are the primary targets of domestic violence, and the #MeToo movement has drawn renewed attention to the ways that men oppress and abuse women.
However, a large number of men face domestic violence, too, and their experiences are often dismissed.
