Tyler, TX (KETK) — We're told to always have a phone on hand in case of an emergency, now there's a device where you can actually use your phone for self-defense.
It's a cell phone case with 650,000 volts for your smartphone. East Texans KETK spoke to say, they would feel secure if they had one.
It's the best disguise especially when you're going for a walk, jog, or even shopping.
They are illegal in some states, but not in Texas.
Don Martin with Tyler police says, if it's not used in self-defense, it's a Class A Misdemeanor.
One important thing to think about people need to think about a person trying use a phone stun gun as a way to attack.
