Man tasered by Australian police dies in custody


SYDNEY – A man died in custody after being tasered and pepper-sprayed by police, Australian officials said on Monday, according to a news report.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
The report said that the officers used capsicum spray on Kevin Norris, 38, and electrocuted him with a [pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]taser after they were called to a McDonald’s restaurant in Bowral, 100 kilometres south of Sydney.
However, police said that two officers were injured while trying to arrest Norris, who later collapsed and[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″] died in the police station.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”8″]
Report says police use of tasers has become controversial following several deaths in Australia.
Three Sydney policemen were cleared of assault charges in December over the 2012 taser death of 21-year-old Brazilian student Roberto Curti.
Meanwhile, the fourth officer would be sentenced later this year. (dpa/NAN)
