ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man Orange County deputies had to control using a Taser has died.

The man has not been identified. He died Wednesday morning.

A sheriff's office spokesman says the man was "under the influence" when deputies used the Taser on him Tuesday. Witnesses said he was charging at cars on the road with a hammer. The man was really holding a squeegee, but deputies found a wrench in his car and determined the suspect was dangerous.

Reports say the deputies tried calming him, then used the Taser.
