Fayetteville Police Department Suspends Use Of Tasers Following Death Of Defendant

One month after the family of North Carolina wrongful death victim, Darryl Turner, was awarded $10 million, a Fayetteville man has died after being Tased by police.

On August 25, Michael Evens was seen acting in an erratic manner and was allegedly trying to jump into the path of vehicles in the roadway. Police attempted to arrest Evans, and when he resisted, a Taser was used. Following the stun by Taser, Evans collapsed. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Several days later, Fayetteville Police suspended the use of Tasers while they investigate this incident and can figure out whether they are safe for use.
