A Pennsylvania woman, who allegedly attacked a man with a stun-gun after she hit two pedestrians and fled the scene, was arrested after witnesses were able to report her easily recognizable vanity license plate, which said ZOMBIE, to police.

Gonzalez's son, Pedro Gonzalez Jr., approached Frantz after witnessing the incident. Frantz then pulled out a stun gun and zapped him in his chest.
Witnesses caught a glimpse of the woman and her vehicle before she sped off, the Morning Call reported. They saw Frantz wearing pajama pants and noticed her unmistakable license plate, which read ZOMBIE.

Police soon found another witness.

Police arrested Frantz, and prosecutors hit her with several charges including three counts each of simple assault and harassment, and one count each of aggravated assault, in an accident involving death, personal injury, disorderly conduct, careless driving, and failing to stop and give information or render aid. She was also charged with crimes related to her use of the stun gun, the Daily Mail reported.
Frantz appeared in court and was able to post $20,000 bail, the Associated Press reported.
Gonzalez was taken to a local hospital after the accident. His nephew did not require medical treatment.
