A new study has found that a low phone battery causes people more stress than a job interview … or running late to a work meeting. Apparently the mere thought of not having a phone at their fingertips leaves people feeling isolated and unable to perform their best.



 A Phoenix mom is accused of using a Taser on her 17-year-old son in order to get him up for Easter church services. She actually tased him on the leg.

According to court paperwork, 40-year-old Sharron Dobbins tased the teen on his leg so he would get up for church.

She says she only "sparked" him...and that she never actually tased him.

Dobbins says she was frustrated by her two teenage sons, one of whom talked back to her when told to send his friends home, so that the family could go to church. She said he even cussed at her.  So she returned to her room, grabbed a taser and returned to the edge of her son's room.

She said she was at least five feet away from her son at the time.

"I had the taser in my hand, and I made the noise with the taser, and so, he was like, 'I'm calling police'," said Dobbins.

Dobbins said her son called police, and when they arrived, she was unfazed. After a quick conference outside, however, her heart sank.  She was handcuffed and put in the back of a police car.

During her initial court appearance, the judge released her without bail, but with some conditions.

"Once you're released, you're not to initiate any contact with the arresting officer, you are not to possess any weapons, including a taser," the judge said.

Police impounded the Taser and said there were two small bumps on the teen's leg.

Dobbins is facing a child abuse charge and will be back in court later this month.
