Woman goes on blow gun spree in Stevens Point

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) -- A 41-year-old woman is in jail after police say she went on a blow gun spree in downtown Stevens Point.

The Stevens Point Journal reports that police got a report at 9 p.m. Wednesday from a 25-year-old woman who said she was walking downtown when she felt something hit her chest. In the next half hour, three more people made similar reports. None were seriously injured.

One of the victims reported she saw the dart shot from a pipe sticking out the window of a black minivan. Police pulled the vehicle over at 9:30 p.m. and found a blow gun, a slingshot and a bucket of rocks inside.

Police arrested the van's driver, Paula Wolf, and say she eventually admitted to shooting the pedestrians. She allegedly told an officer that she "liked to hear people say ouch."

Wolf has been charged with recklessly endangering safety. She could not be reached for comment.
