CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A New Hampshire jury has convicted a 23-year-old woman of assault for using a stun gun on a pregnant woman during a road-rage incident.

WMUR-TV reports (
http://bit.ly/Adz7vK) the jury convicted Carissa Williams of Pembroke of second-degree assault in the attack on another female driver 10 months ago in Concord.

The confrontation occurred on an off-ramp of Interstate 93 last March, after the women yelled back and forth between their cars and the other woman _Corrine Leclair-Holler _ followed Williams’ car onto the interstate.

Jurors heard Leclair-Holler’s panicked voice and screams on the tape on the 911 call she placed as Williams was approaching her car and fired the stun gun at her.

Williams will be sentenced later this month.
