A Baraboo man who repeatedly shocked an East Side dance instructor with a stun gun on Friday claimed the instructor was a "sinner" who "defiles married women," according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday...I presume a "stun gun" is a taser (?). Didn't know one can buy them freely on the internet - and I don't find that discovery to be very reassuring.
Johnson told Detective Patrick Green that he had taken dance lessons before but stopped because his church does not condone bodies touching while dancing.
Johnson claimed that other people had told him that the instructor is "a true sinner, fornicator, (adulterer), he defiles married women and is a peeking Tom."
Johnson said he was going to scare the instructor "and tell him to leave the women alone." To do that, he said, he would go to a lesson and "take the electric thing and go zap and scare him."
He bought the stun gun on the Internet, he said, and brought the sledgehammer to the lesson with him inside his pants.
The instructor told police that Johnson phoned for private dance lesson, and when he opened the door to his home, Johnson began to shock him repeatedly in the neck with the stun gun.
And I always thought the term was "peeping Tom," but perhaps there are regional variants.
