BISMARCK, N.D. – Police have arrested a man after they say he used a cattle prod on his ex-girlfriend during an argument.
According to the criminal complaint, 37-year-old Christopher Martin went to the home of his ex-girlfriend and accused her of stealing $500 from him the night before. The ensuing argument resulted in Martin producing a 5-foot-long cattle prod that he used to shock his ex.
When police arrived and interviewed Martin, he admitted shocking his ex out of anger over the missing money. Martin’s day got even better after a K-9 search dog at the scene hit on his vehicle. The resulting search would yield some weed, some meth and drug-related paraphernalia.
Martin was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault-domestic violence along with a myriad of drug related charges. If convicted on the felony assault, he faces five years in prison and a $5000 fine.Tags: cattle prod, Christopher Martin, Crime, Domestic Violence, North Dakota
