Watercooler Talk

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. — A 29-year-old woman was arrested after allegedly using a stun gun on a woman who tried to hug her on Christmas night. Deborah Downing has been jailed $15,510 bond. She was charged with aggravated battery, petty theft and violation of pretrial release. It’s unclear if she already has an attorney.

According to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office report, Sheri Brennan was picking up a friend Dec. 25 when the incident occurred.
Brennan’s friend told investigators that she was shocked after trying to hug Downing and offer a holiday greeting. Brennan wasn’t seriously injured.

Brennan told authorities that she had a rocky past with Downing, but thought the two had resolved their differences.
