State troopers shot at a woman with a Taser gun and then arrested her on multiple charges after she repeatedly refused to come out of a Wayne County residence Monday evening, officials said.
Theresa A. Williams, 47, of the Bronston community in Pulaski County, was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, second-degree arson, menacing, resisting arrest and third-degree terroristic threatening, according to the London state police post.
Williams, who also was charged with intoxication and disorderly conduct, was lodged in the Wayne County jail.
It all began about 6:15 p.m. Monday when the London post received a call from the Wayne County Sheriff's Department about a possible barricade-hostage situation at a residence on Ky. 834.

Troopers said they arrived to find Williams inside the home, alleging that she was being held hostage by her husband.
Officers tried and failed several times to negotiate with Williams by phone, state police said.
At that point, troopers entered the residence and used a Taser to subdue Williams, police said. She was then taken into custody without further incident.
Officers later searched the residence and determined that Williams had been inside alone, authorities said.
Multiple area police and fire agencies responded to the scene, according to state police.
