    A Pembroke Pines woman faces charges after she was accused of zapping her child’s father and another woman with a stun gun after she caught the pair being intimate.

    Eva Hartman, 34, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of domestic battery but has since been released on $2,500 bond.

    Hartman found 42-year-old Alvin Hennis, the father of her three-year-old daughter, in bed with another woman, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported. Hartman was accused of using a stun gun from her key chain on the couple and then allegedly chasing the woman out of the house and using the stun gun on her again in the front yard, according to Judge John Hurley.

    “[Hartman] came over your house, walked into the master bedroom, and caught you allegedly being intimate with another woman and took offense at that,” Hurley told Hennis during Hartman’s bond court hearing Thursday.

    Two lawyers helped tackle a defendant who made an abbreviated attempt at a getaway in the central Fort Lauderdale courthouse Thursday. Ernest Burch, 32, was in court Thursday morning to be arraigned on five charges for a domestic violence case, according to court records. Assistant State Attorney Andrew Newman, who was not a prosecutor in the case, said that as the hearing was going on, "I could see that the judge was getting ready to revoke his bond. And I like to watch their hands," he said of defendants, "because if they?re going to resist, you can see it right when the deputies go to take their hands from behind."

    But Hennis, who called Hartman hardworking and responsible, blamed the incident on himself.

    “Well, it is pretty much all my fault, you know what I mean,” Hennis told Hurley.

    Hennis also said the stun gun didn't cause much damage.

    “It was a weak, whatever it is,” he said. “I don’t know what the h*** it was.”

    A prosecutor in the courtroom protested to the judge when Hartman and other inmates began to laugh during the proceeding.

    Hennis later apologized in court for being with the other woman and admitted he left the door to his bedroom unlocked.

    “That probably was your first mistake, sir,” Hurley said.

    Hartman was ordered to have no contact with the other woman involved.
