ORANGE, Texas (AP) - A 46-year-old man is dead after police in
Orange stunned him with a Taser while trying to arrest him.
The unidentified man was found at the home of an elderly woman
after she made a medical alert call yesterday.
The Orange Leader reports medical personnel called police after
arriving at her home and seeing the woman screaming for help.
Officers found the man on the floor and the woman in a bed.
After police tried taking him into custody, the suspect resisted
and officers used their Taser to stop him.
Police said he was momentarily combative before appearing
non-responsive. The man was transported to Memorial Hermann Baptist
Hospital-Orange where he later died.
Autopsy results are pending.
