MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A 46 year old Madison woman is in jail due to what police call a failed attempt to shoot her husband.

She’s being held in the Dane County Jail.

The 46 year old husband says he woke up last Saturday to see a revolver pointed at him. He says she smashed his cell phone after seeing some text messages on it and then pulled the trigger.

However, the gun failed to fire and the husband took the weapon away from her.

At that point, police say the woman threw some pots and pans at her husband, then got into an SUV. But the man’s car was parked behind her SUV, so she starting ramming it with the larger vehicle.

Officers were called and arrived to arrest the woman.
