OLYMPIA, Wash. —Court papers allege that an Olympia woman, angry that her husband left her, tampered with his power tools so that he received a powerful electric shock.
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.
The Olympian newspaper reported that court documents said that on Jan. 1, the man was using a 220-volt table saw when he received the shock, knocking him to the ground. Thurston County sheriff’s deputies said the man did not need to go to a hospital.
In the documents, deputies said the woman told them she had reversed the wires on his power tools because she was angry he was leaving.
