$10K donation nets Arizona Coyotes hockey fan chance to use Taser on Glendale mayor

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- An Arizona Coyotes fan got to take out her frustration on the mayor behind the decision to send the hockey team packing.
 
Disgruntled fan Ronda Pearson used a stun gun on Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers on Saturday as part of a charity pledge.
 
Weiers volunteered to be stunned with a Taser at the Community Supporting Cops event at the Arrowhead Mall if a $10,000 donation was made to the 100 Club, which supports first-responders.
 
Firefighters determined Weiers was not injured.
 
Organizers say Pearson and another Coyotes fan showed up with a $10,000 money order.
 
Weiers and the Glendale City Council voted Wednesday to end an arena lease agreement with the Coyotes. A judge on Friday temporarily halted its termination.
 
Pearson gained attention on social media for a public rant directed at Weiers.
