Another person dies of "excited delirium," the disease that only hits people in police custody. This time it was a man booked on suspicion of using methamphetamines who got into s struggle at the police station.
Interestingly, this happened in a police department which seems to be fairly sensitive to the potential lethality of taser shock:
Officers have used Tasers on other suspects, and the department tracks those incidents, Doane said. Statistics weren't immediately available.
Doane said officers are careful to monitor anyone they shock with a Taser for possible medical problems. After a strenuous fight, there's a lot of adrenaline shooting through the body, he said. Officers are trained to look for changes in breathing or any type of distress. Anyone who has been shot with a Taser must be medically cleared after the incident, he added.
