A woman from Olympia, Washington allegedly was so angry when her husband left her that she left him with a little extra power in his power tool. So when he attempted to use his table saw he received a powerful electric shock.

The Olympian newspaper reported that the woman is accused of reversing the wires on his 220-volt table saw causing him to receive a shock so intense it knocked him to the ground. Thurston County sheriff’s deputies say the man did not need to go to a hospital.

From www.TheOlympian.com on 1/9/2010: “Carolyn Paulsen-Riat was booked Friday into the Thurston County Jail for investigation of third-degree assault, domestic violence, and second-degree malicious mischief. A judge released the 33-year-old woman on her own recognizance.”

So remember: Next time you step out on your wife, be sure to take your tools with you.
