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.
