Georgia Taser Death Investigation

A Georgia district attorney says some of the police officers involved in the “taser” death of a man could face criminal charges.

The Gwinnett County D.A. is reviewing the case from last may where Frederick Jerome Williams died two days after being subdued by police tasers.

An autopsy shows Williams died of brain damage from a heart attack, but they could not pinpoint what caused the heart attack.

Police had arrived at the Williams home in Lawrenceville to answer a domestic disturbance call.

Officers say Williams fought with them on the scene and had to be subdued later at the jail.

Two inmates have died at the Gwinnett County Jail after being shocked with a stun gun.
