Stillwater Man Accused Of Using Stun Gun On Woman
By: Patti Weaver
(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Stillwater man — due in court on Sept. 18 for alleged probation violations on burglary and stolen property convictions — has been charged with using a stun gun on a woman six times, court records show.
Due to his criminal record, Timothy Walter Moore, 33, could be given as much as a life prison term if convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
A Stillwater woman reported on July 12 that she had been attacked by Moore, who she thought was trying to break into her house, Stillwater Police Officer Stephanie Wheeler wrote in an affidavit.
The woman said she was in the process of moving items from a hotel to her home and saw Moore was there when she arrived, the affidavit alleged.
“She pulled into the driveway and he stared at her. She said that he started to cuss at her and would not leave. (She) did not exit her vehicle because she was worried he might do something,” the affidavit alleged.
“Tim was stating that he had left a phone inside the house and he wanted to retrieve it. Tim threatened to kick the door in.
“Tim then approached (her) and opened her door; he then pulled something out of his pocket that had some type of cloth on it,” the affidavit alleged.
“She stated that she thought it was a gun. She then heard a popping noise and realized it was a conductive energy weapon,” which he touched her skin with about six times, the affidavit alleged.
The woman said “she was hitting and kicking trying to get Tim away from her. She then said she bit him on the arm and he backed away, so she fled from the scene in her vehicle,” the affidavit alleged.
At the time Moore was on probation for second-degree burglary in 2017 and having stolen property in 2016 in Payne County, for which he was ordered to appear in court on Sept. 18 for alleged failure to pay restitution and fees, court records show.
Moore had been incarcerated from 2006 until 2008 while serving prison terms for possessing a drug with intent to distribute, maintaining a place where drugs were kept, possessing a firearm while committing a felony, and child endangerment, all in 2004 in Payne County, court records show.
