Authorities say a man who told police he had overdosed on crack cocaine died after Fayetteville police used a Taser to restrain him.

Police said Wednesday that officers responding to an early morning business alarm found 36-year-old Otis Anderson. Authorities said the man became combative and that officers twice shot him with a Taser to subdue him.

Medics attended to Anderson, but he stopped breathing and was later pronounced dead. Authorities said the man had told an officer that he had overdosed on crack cocaine. More HERE
