HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina authorities say deputies hit a naked man with a stun gun after he charged at them following a car crash, and that the man has died.
Henderson County sheriff’s Maj. Frank Stout said in a statement that when deputies arrived at the crash scene about 1 a.m. Tuesday, they found the naked driver acting extremely irrationally and uncooperative.
Stout says as deputies tried to take the man into custody, he charged at officers and a Taser was used.
Stout says the man went into arrest and was taken to a hospital, where he died. His name has not been released.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol and the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating.
