HOLLYWOOD—LAPD responded to a call on the 400 block of Vermont Avenue, possibly involving a drunk driver on Thursday, April 4 at around 11:20 p.m. Upon arriving on the scene, officer’s tasered the man who they described as acting in a “combative” nature.

 

The man who remains unidentified was taken to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center where the coroner’s Assistant Chief, Ed Winter, pronounced him dead at approximately 1 a.m.

 

This is not the first time that a death has resulted after a police taser has been used. In December, a 39 year-old man died after being tasered twice by Chicago police.
