A man who died after being shocked with a Taser by a sheriff’s deputy in North Idaho in May suffered a heart attack, officials announced today.
Daniel L. Mittelstadt, 56, of Mount Shasta, Calif., had a preexisting heart condition and a long history of mental health issues when Boundary County sheriff’s Cpl. Clint Randall responded to a report of a naked man blocking a road with his car about 1 a.m. on May 16.
Mittelstadt was wearing on a jacket and was described by Randall as “uncooperative and irrational.” Full story. Meghann Cuniff, SR
Do you think the officer's use of a taser was reasonable?
