OCALA, Fla. (AP) - The family of a man who was shocked with a stun gun while handcuffed has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Marion County Sheriff's Office and two deputies involved.
A grand jury report found Deputy Norm Brown shocked Joshua Salvato for several minutes as Salvato lay face down and handcuffed after being shot by another deputy.
Salvato had fought Brown and Deputy Lauren Miley in a park last July after Miley tried to question him about reports he had been acting oddly and shouting at traffic.
The Ocala Star-Banner reports (http://www.ittybittyurl.com/hev) that after Miley shot Salvato, Brown began shocking him. He told investigators he didn't realize Salvato had been shot. Salvato died at the scene and the shocks did not contribute to his death. The shooting was ruled justified.
