Fla. Man Who Died After Taser Use OD’d on Swallowed Drugs



An autopsy report says a man who died in December after police used a Taser stun device on him died from the high levels of cocaine in his body, the Sun-Sentinel reports. The Delray Beach Police Department defended is use of the Taser at a news conference Tuesday.

The 31-year-old man was found to have ingested four small baggies of illegal drugs that had ruptured, filling his stomach with 1,135 milligrams of cocaine and other substances. Experts say they still don’t know enough about the interplay between the effects of drugs combined with Taser use.
