Details revealed in Ohio man's Taser-related death



Published: Fri, December 7, 2012 @ 11:13 a.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Court documents are revealing new details in the case of an unarmed, mentally ill Ohio man who died during a confrontation with police after they stunned him seven times with a Taser.

The documents obtained by The Associated Press show that 39-year-old Doug Boucher of Mason was stunned seven times, kicked and repeatedly hit with a baton on Dec. 13, 2009, all mostly after he had fallen face-first onto cement and had stopped moving.

Now lawyers for Boucher’s parents and the police department are preparing to square off in federal court in Cincinnati on Jan. 10.

The department is pushing for the case to be dropped.

Boucher’s parents want their lawsuit against police alleging excessive force and unreasonable seizure to move forward to a jury trial in February.
