After the Taser attack, Peterson, his girlfriend, 20-year-old Colleen Parker, and their young child, who had all been living with his mother for the past several months, left her home in the 1000 block of Sunflower Street.
Deputies who responded to the domestic disturbance call arrested Peterson and Parker a short time later in Richland Center.

Under questioning, Peterson allegedly admitted to deploying the stun gun against his parent on Mother's Day, and his girlfriend allegedly confessed to punching the woman in the face during an earlier confrontation on Thursday.
Parker was charged with battery and disorderly conduct.
Court records indicate that Peterson has a prior criminal history, which includes convictions for DUI, possession of drug paraphernalia and trespassing.
