Jacksonville, FL (AP) - A Jacksonville woman has been charged
with shocking her son's youth football coach with a stun gun.
The coach told police that he and 43-year-old Roxine Cornela
Cobb first got into an argument Monday night at Sandalwood High
School. The fight continued Tuesday night when the woman reportedly
walked up to the coach and zapped him in the chest.
The coach told police he slapped the stun gun out of her hand,
and the argument continued until police arrived. Two witnesses
confirmed the coach's story.
Cobb told police she didn't think she actually zapped the man.
The woman was arrested and charged with battery and discharging
a weapon on school grounds. She was released Wednesday on $25,000
bail.

    HOWL... I have seen similar antics in Little League...drama...drama...drama...no stun gun though... but plenty of shocking verbal hits. Having a sense of humor and being of a similar age... Hormone imbalances can make a woman go nuts momentarily... Oh what a lesson she is about to learn about unleashed fury. Expensive too... I see some anti-anxiety meds and anger management classes in her immediate future... Poor Coach...a volunteer gig and he gets roughed up by a team Mom... so sad!! What an incredible life story to laugh about while sitting in his rocking chair. "Son...do you remember that time the loony lady zapped me with a stun gun on the field...I wonder what ever happened to her?"...

    I wish parents like this would have the same type of passion about their childs academics. I'm willing to bet that this mother has no idea, who her son's science and math teachers are, because a lot of parents place athletic standards higher than academic standards. SAD!

    Sounds like someone needs a time out......and anger management! Throw the book at her! "Cobb told police she didn't think she actually zapped the man" B.S. she did exactly what she planned on doing, or she wouldn't have brought the gun with her in the first place. How can she not know she pulled the trigger? For him to slap the gun out of her hand, she had to have been standing pretty close when she pulled the trigger. The coach showed great restraint IMO. Had it been me, once the gun was knocked from her hand, I would have picked it up and "mistakingly" fired it right back at her! She needs to be barred from school grounds permanently, what a hot head. I assume the coach is Ok, nothing reported of anything happening to him from being stunned.

    Maybe she should consider keeping the kids locked in the house and home schooling them.....After she gets out of jail.
