DES MOINES, Iowa – Newly released records obtained by the Des Moines Register show that a man was tasered by police 15 times before he died.
On September 22, officials were called to a home in Northwood for a domestic dispute.
Authorities say they found Michael Zubrod beating his girlfriend with a hammer and a pair of scissors.
Deputies say they used a taser to try to subdue Zubrod.
He later died.
An autopsy shows that Zubrod had methamphetamine in his system. It also showed he had a heart condition which officials believed contributed to his death.
The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide but prosecutors decided not to charge the deputies for his death.
