A Swedish man allegedly narrowly escaped castration by his former girlfriend, (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/04/17/swedish_zap/) after he dodged the enraged ex's opening shot from an electric stun gun.

The Local.se reports that the man had met with his ex to arrange the retrieval of some of his belongings. When he arrived though, he quickly realized the 26 year old woman from Malmo was intent on retrieving even more of his valuables.

She allegedly pointed the stun gun at his genitals and declared "I'm going to castrate you", before pulling the trigger.

However, a prompt backwards lunge saved the man from a painful volting, and the woman has now been charged with "illegal weapons possession, attempted assault, illegal threats, and abuse".
