The Wisconsin Department of Justice says a man tased by officers in Altoona October 8th did not survive. Eau Claire police say 43-year-old Demetrio Jackson died in the hospital last Friday. Investigators said Jackson was acting strangely and causing damage while standing on a vehicle. He reportedly resisted arrest and an officer said they used a Taser on him to stabilize the situation. Jackson was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The D-O-J said provisional autopsy results show the cause of death doesn’t appear to be from traumatic injuries and is still pending laboratory analysis at this time. The D-C-I is leading the investigation and will send its reports to the Eau Claire County District Attorney’s office.
