.Santa Rita Inmate Dies after Guards Taze Him

The Chron reports that another intoxicated man died in custody after police used less-than-lethal weapons to subdue him. Here’s the gist: Martin Harrison was popped for DUI, booked, and sent to the county jail at Santa Rita. After a few hours, Harrison allegedly flipped out, trashed his cell and flooded it by clogging up the toilet, then hid under his mattress while claiming that someone was out there trying to kill him. The guards tazed him while trying to move him to a different cell and clean up the one he trashed, and Harrison collapsed and died in the infirmary.
