Audrecas Davis died last year from cardiorespiratory arrest after police officers in DeKalb County used Tasers to restrain him. The parents of the 29-year-old are now taking legal action and filing a lawsuit against the county and eight officers.
According to CBS Atlanta, the lawsuit alleges that DeKalb police officers used excessive force when they shocked Davis six times while he may have been suffering from a seizure. Police reportedly were called after he was found to be unresponsive and lying on the floor of his motel room. EMS workers on the scene tried to restrain Davis on a stretcher, but police officers reportedly used their Taser guns when they struggled to with Davis at a point when he was trying to refuse treatment.
