BOISE, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho woman is facing felony charges after police say she tried to shock detectives with a stun gun.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/20J7Ryn ) that police say they were looking for the 25-year-old woman after she made suicidal comments and threatened her ex-husband with a stun gun in a Walgreens Pharmacy parking lot. Meridian Police Deputy Chief Tracy Basterrechea says the woman left with the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, although her ex-husband had been the girl’s caretaker.

Detectives say they caught up with the woman Wednesday at a Meridian Walmart Supercenter, where she pulled out the stun gun again.

Police say she refused to comply with commands and tried to shock three of the officers when they tried to subdue her and protect the child.

None of the officers were hurt.
