Hemet Man Dies; Police Taser Him in Confrontation

Authorities say a Hemet man has died at a local hospital after police reportedly used a Taser gun on him during a confrontation last weekend.

The man, who was reportedly mentally disturbed, ran into traffic, according to police reports. After police tried to get him out of the road, he reportedly became confrontational with law enforcement. That is when a deputy used a Taser gun on him to take him into custody.

Reports say the man, whose name was not released, had trouble breathing after being tasered and was taken to the hospital.
