GILLETTE (WNE) – A 90-year-old woman was ticketed for unlawful contact after hitting her son with a cattle prod Friday. Deputies had ticketed the same woman on Wednesday for destruction of property after putting honey on her son’s door to try to “sweeten” him up.
After 5 p.m. Friday, her son, 59, reported that his mom had hit him and his wife with a cattle prod after his wife, 54, confronted the 90-year-old about opening a gate to the property on the 3000 block of West 4J Road, said Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds.
The 59-year-old showed deputies a video of his mother hitting him with the cattle prod.
During the prior incident involving honey, the man said his mom has been trespassed from most of his property and is only allowed on a small joint portion of the land.
