Florida woman charged with tasering daughter in the face

Over cleaning mobile home

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Tampa Bay area woman used a Taser stun gun on her adult daughter because she didn't like the way the other woman cleans their mobile home.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office reports that 48-year-old Cynthia Alexander approached her 28-year-old daughter, who was sitting on the couch, Tuesday evening. Alexander reportedly punched her daughter in the face and chest. The daughter fought back, scratching Alexander, but then Alexander pulled out the Taser and sent 5 million volts into the daughter's face.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the daughter eventually ran outside, where a neighbor intervened and called deputies.

The daughter didn't want to press charges, but deputies still arrested Alexander and charged her with aggravated domestic battery.

She was being held on $7,500 bail.
