FOX 66 News at Ten
Saginaw is getting testing for four stun guns used during a confrontation involving police that ended with the death of a 38-year-old man in April.
Bobby Louis Merrill Jr. died after police tried to subdue him. The Saginaw News reports City Council on Monday approved a more than $6,500 bill to pay for testing.
Police have said officers found Merrill after a report of a man acting strangely, walking in the street and jumping onto cars. Authorities say he went into cardiac arrest and died, and prosecutors have said that Merrill's death was caused by alcohol and high levels of cocaine in his system at the time.
Following the finding from prosecutors, the city wanted an additional evaluation of the stun guns.
