A 21-year-old Brownwood woman’s romance with her new boyfriend ended with a falling-out that included him threatening her with voltage-emitting “stun” knuckles, police said.
“(Expletive), I’ll tase you, I’ll tase you,” the woman quoted the man as saying when she talked to officer Brandon Arnold.
The woman told Arnold Monday afternoon she and the man met two weeks ago and were boyfriend and girlfriend, and were talking about getting more serious — until their dispute, Arnold’s report states.
The man had told her he was on the run from Austin police, and she let him stay in her home for a couple of days. After a verbal dispute, the man knocked pictures off the wall and tore things up, then grabbed some of her DVDs and started to leave.
When she blocked his path, the man produced stun knuckles, which are similar to brass knuckles but have electrode surfaces that can render someone unconscious from the voltage, Arnold’s report states.
The man grabbed the woman, moved her aside and left. The woman told Arnold she knows what stun knuckles can do because she saw him use them while assaulting a man who ended up unconscious.
