Police Taser Caused Mans Heart to Stop

The death of a Salt Lake City man, allegedly at the hand of a city police officer's Taser, has prompted a lawsuit against the Salt Lake City Police Department. In the lawsuit, the family claims officers unnecessarily tased the victim during an arrest in June, causing his heart to stop. The family points to a witness on the scene who says she heard officers talking about using a Taser on the man and how he stopped breathing after the shock was administered.
