LINDEN – Police arrested a 34-year-old Elizabeth woman who allegedly pulled out a stun gun during an argument with a 42-year-old Staten Island woman over a shopping cart on Thanksgiving, according to police.
Latosha Mathis was charged with illegal possession of a stun gun and could be sentenced to up to 18 months in jail and fined up to $10,000 if she is convicted. She was released on a summons pending a court date.
A Linden Fire Department captain who was assigned to Walmart to monitor the crowd situation told police that one of the women had a stun gun after they were alerted to the parking lot dispute at 7:18 p.m. on Nov. 28.
The charge against Mathis is merely an accusation; she is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
