PLANT CITY, Fla. – A 46-year-old man died after a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputy stunned him three times with a Taser.
Roney Wilson's family called deputies to their Tampa-area home Thursday evening, saying Wilson was off his medication and behaving violently.
When deputies arrived at the scene, Wilson refused to leave his seat in a car. As they attempted to remove him from the vehicle, authorities say Wilson kicked a deputy in the stomach and tried running away.
Throughout the ordeal, Wilson was stunned three times.
After he was handcuffed, deputies noticed Wilson was unresponsive and had a faint pulse. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died. An autopsy is pending.
