Grand Junction, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Christopher Morgan Taylor, a 30 year old Grand Junction, Colorado man was arrested on suspicion of using a stun gun to coerce his girlfriend into having sex.
According to the arrest affidavit, Taylor allegedly turned on a stun gun three times after his girlfriend refused to have sex with him early Tuesday. The woman and Taylor had spent Monday 'making out' and were in bed when the alleged incidents took place.
The woman told police that Taylor turned on the Taser and said to her, "I don't normally do this to anybody, but..."
The woman also stated that she told Taylor to turn the Taser off because it was "freaking her out". When Taylor continued to use the Taser a third time, she left his apartment.
"Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department located a stun gun on Taylor’s bedroom nightstand after Taylor gave officers permission to search the house,'" the arrest affidavit said.
The woman told police that she and Taylor had been seeing each other for nine months prior to the incident and usually stayed at his apartment two or three days per week.
Taylor is now being held on suspicion felony charges including first-degree sexual assault and unlawful use of a stun gun. He was booked into the Mesa County Jail on a $60,000 bond.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Now if Taylor had gone out to the kitchen and returned with an electric mixer, see, the whole thing would have been funny instead of being "freaky".
He might have even had half a shot. Perhaps his jail house buddies can show him the ropes now.
