Yardley Joy Frantz of Allentown, PA was released on $20,000 bail after being arrested for using a stun gun on a man who had been aiding another man she'd allegedly hit with her car. It was easy for police to track her down: her license plate read ZOMBIE. When officers arrived at her home, they found Ms. Frantz "bleeding next to her right eye and trying to report a domestic violence incident." She told officers that she did not know who was driving the car when it hit the man.
Frantz was charged with three counts each of simple assault and harassment and one count each of aggravated assault, accidents involving death or personal injury, disorderly conduct, careless driving and failing to stop and give information or render aid.
She was also charged with three counts related to the stun gun, including using an incapacitation device.
