According to the indictment, the couple had decided to meet last spring so the man could retrieve some of his things, the City newspaper reports.

But instead of receiving his belongings, the man found himself with a stun gun pointed at his groin.

“I’m going to castrate you,” said the woman, and fired.

The man managed to lunge backwards at the last instant, however, and thus missed being hit by the weapon's electric shock.

The woman has been charged for illegal weapons possession, attempted assault, illegal threats, and abuse.

For the record 50,000 volts from a stun gun couldn't technically castrate someone. Might have had trouble stiffening up for a long while though.

Why can i not find a Girlfriend like that? I would gladly pay a Woman to do that to me, but i would rather have her do it out of anger at me. I would give up my nuts to a Woman in that way real quick.
