Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers wanted to find a way to raise money for a local charity benefiting first responders. He came up with an idea. A crazy one. One that can be summed up concisely with —

— “Tase me, bro!”

Mayor Weiers offered any citizen the opportunity to shoot him with a taser if they made the first $10,000 donation to the 100 Club of Arizona.

“My wife’s not real happy about it, but I still think it’s for the best,” Weiers said before the event took place.

Who donated the prize-winning $10,000? A collective of Arizona Coyotes fans, who were upset that the City Council had voted to end a leasing agreement with the team. Ronda Pearson, a woman who gave a very public rant about the situation, was given the honor of actually pulling the trigger.
