GRANTS PASS, OR (KPTV) -

A woman armed with a stun gun accused of menacing people at a Grant Pass home was hit with a Taser by police and taken into custody.

Oregon State Police were called to the home on the 800 block of North Schoolhouse Creek Road at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Troopers said Jacquelyn Novack, 37, was there with a stun gun and a hammer. Investigators said she was menacing the three people at the home, which included her 15-year-old son.

Troopers said when they made contact with Novack, she demanded they shoot her and displayed her stun gun. Troopers used a Taser and said it subdued her without further incident.

Novack had outstanding felony warrants in Josephine and Jackson counties. She was taken to a Medford hospital for an evaluation and then booked into the Jackson County Jail.

Her outstanding warrants include charges of failure to appear, theft, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.

She was cited to appear at a later date in Josephine County Circuit Court on charges of menacing and trespassing.
