Sharron Dobbins, 40, told police in Phoenix that she "only sparked the taser to get the kids up for church on Easter," according to court records obtained to KTVK. Dobbins denied actually using the contact taser on anyone.
An 18-year-old and 17-year-old were also in the room of the apartment and witnessed the incident around 7:45 a.m. on April 1, police said. Police found the taser and impounded it as evidence.
Dobbins was arrested just after 8 a.m. Easter Sunday, shortly after the incident, according to a probable cause statement.
