Missouri woman used stun gun on driver, Nebraska authorities say
NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska authorities said a Missouri woman was cited for assault after using a stun gun on the driver of the vehicle in which she was traveling, resulting in the car rolling.
Nebraska City station KNCY reports 41-year-old Jolie Hoefling was treated for minor injuries after the incident.
Otoe County Sheriff James Gress told The Associated Press Wednesday that Hoefling and 46-year-old Miles Sprague, of Lexington, Missouri, were arguing on July 18 as they drove west on the Nebraska-Iowa Highway 2 bridge. Reports said Hoefling pulled out a stun gun and shot Sprague. The SUV struck a concrete barrier and eventually rolled over into a ditch on the Nebraska side.
Gress said Sprague refused to be hospitalized.
It was unclear Wednesday whether Hoefling had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
