MARGATE, Fla. - Sometimes the wrath of a woman scorned includes the use of a stun gun.
Eva Hartman, 34, was arrested after catching her child's father in bed having sex with another woman and then repeatedly shocking the morning lovers with a stun gun, according to a police report.
The stunned Lothario, Alvin Hennis, 42, was in Broward Court Judge John "Jay" Hurley's courtroom on Thursday trying to help Hartman out of jail. Hennis and Hartman have a 3-year-old daughter together.
"It was pretty much my fault," Hennis told the judge. "We were supposed to do something together that morning and I forgot. I went to my house and things happened."
According to a Margate Police report, this is what happened:
Sometime early Wednesday morning, Hartman, who lives in Pembroke Pines, walked into Hennis' Margate home through an unlocked door. She went into the master bedroom and found the nude couple in bed. Hennis told police that at the time he was "being intimate" with his current girlfriend, Cordelia Rose, 32.
Hennis told police that Hartman stormed the bed yelling "You and I just had sex last night."
Hartman then shocked the man on the left arm with a stun gun that was attached to her key chain.
She then turned her fury against Rose, stunning her several times as well.
The type of stun gun was not described in the police report.
The report said Hennis separated the two women and pushed Hartman out of his house.
Rose told police that her boyfriend ordered her to stay in the locked bedroom as Hartman and Hennis were fighting outside. But Rose went out of the house through a window. Trying to make it to her car, she was stunned on her neck and arm by Hartman's device, according to the report.
Hartman left the house in Hennis' car. She was arrested at her home in Pembroke Pines shortly before noon Wednesday.
Nobody needed medical treatment after the incident, according to police.
During Thursday's hearing, Hennis appeared apologetic while Hartman, dressed in brown jail garb, could be seen trying to hold back laughter. At one point, Hartman and several other inmates who were awaiting their hearings burst out laughing as Hennis urged the judge to be lenient on his child's mom.
"She is a beautiful mother, a hard worker and very responsible. I think she got emotional by what she saw," Hennis told Hurley. "It was all my fault."
"I could imagine things could get very emotional," Hurley answered.
"Oh, things got very emotional," Hennis said. "Very emotional."
Hartman was released from jail on Thursday after posting a $2,500 bond. She could not be reached for comments on Friday. She is facing one count of domestic battery and one count of simple battery, both misdemeanors, and was ordered not to have any contact with the shocked couple while she awaits trial.
She also isn't allowed to carry a stun gun.
