Courtier was arrested after police responded to a traffic accident at the 400 block of North Vermont Avenue on April 4 at around 7:50 p.m. After which Courtier, who was seemingly intoxicated at the time, attempted to run away from the scene. In an effort to stop and detain Courtier one of the officers used a stun gun in “Direct Stun Mode.”

 

Officers called Paramedics and the Los Angeles Fire Department for assistance after Courtier suffered a laceration to the face in the process of being taken down and handcuffed. Once the paramedics arrived on to the scene, they found Courtier non-responsive to treatment and transported him to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after.

 

The Chief of Police, Officer of the Inspector General and the Board of Police Commissioners will conduct an investigation to ensure that the officer’s actions were objectively reasonable. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will also investigate the facts involved in the matter.
