Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil says deputies who used a Taser early Tuesday morning to subdue a man resisting arrest appear to have followed department protocols.
59-year-old Gary Roell stopped breathing after the incident and was pronounced dead at Bethesda North Hospital.
"These are instances where you are justified in deploying a Taser: in protection of others, including yourself; and to meet the resistance of someone who is not complying, who is resisting arrest, to gain control of the situation," says Neil.
The police are looking for you. Not to worry though, they just want to hang out and have a good time.
Tuesday is National Night Out, an event aimed at raising crime prevention awareness and developing partnerships between neighborhoods and police officers. There are 8 mini block parties scheduled for around Cincinnati with free food and drinks.
Police and fire equipment will also be on hand for kids to see up close.
Nationwide, more than 37 million people are expected to participate.
