There was family drama in north Houston. A mother-in-law grabbed a Taser and a gun when her son-in-law tried to break in early this morning. It happened at a townhouse on Greens Road near Greens Manor in north Houston. Police say the man arrived to the home drunk and tried to kick in a window. That's when the mother-in-law tried to Taser him. When that didn't work, he grabbed her and allegedly threw her down the stairs and then started fighting with his wife.

Police say that's when the mother-in-law shot the son-in-law with a pistol. He is expected to live.

A police investigation is underway.
