Taser Abuse Investigation Leads to Domestic Violence Charges

. By
Merced, CAA county judge will allow a legless man to go to trial on charges of domestic violence after an investigation into alleged Taser abuse provided ample evidence against him.

Prosecutors claim that Williams struck his wife with a broomstick during an argument, jumping on her and attempting to strangle her, according to the Modesto Bee.

Police reports claim that Williams was unruly at the time of his arrest, leading the officers to use a Taser to subdue him - the investigation of which turned up eyewitness accounts and photographs of Williams' abuse of his wife.

Williams' wife, Demetrice Shunt'e Pfifer, is also facing charges of domestic violence stemming from a 2004 arrest during which she was accused of beating her husband. She is currently wanted on a $10,000 misdemeanor warrant.

Judges have set Williams' bail at $50,000. The man faces three felony counts, including corporal injury to a spouse, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with intent to injure.
