Post Falls Police Tase Diabetic Driver

Item: Man having diabetic episode Tased by police:Low blood sugar caused him to be incoherent, police said/Chelsea Bannach, SR

More Info: A driver was Tased today for resisting before police realized he was actually having a diabetic episode. The incident started about 4:45 p.m. when dispatchers got a report of a man driving erratically on Seltice Way in Post Falls, “slow, fast and all over the lane,” said Post Falls police Sgt. Kathy Eshoo. Before an officer caught up to him, the man drove over a porch and clipped the corner of a house, before stopping in the yard, she said. The man was not complying with police orders and was Tased, Eshoo said, but he then began fighting with the officers.

Question: Was this situation handled properly by Post Falls police?
