MURRIETA, Calif. (AP) — A Riverside County father has been charged with multiple felonies after being accused of using a stun gun on a man who sent his teenage daughter a racy cell phone picture.
Authorities say 45-year-old William Atwood Sr. of French Valley lured 23-year-old Justin Moore to his home, forced him to strip and assaulted him with a stun gun.
Prosecutors on Wednesday charged Atwood with making criminal threats, false imprisonment, assault with a stun gun, assault with a deadly weapon and other gun charges.
According to court records, Moore was shocked on the shoulder for 20 seconds.
Investigators searching Atwood's home seized zip ties, stun guns and more than a dozen firearms.
