CAMDENTON, Mo. -- The Camden County prosecuting attorney says no charges will be filed against three Camden County sheriff's deputies who fought with a home invader who died after the deputies used an electric stun gun on him. Glenn Norman died last Oct. 4 outside a house near Linn Creek.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol investigated Norman's death and sent a report to Prosecuting Attorney Brian Keedy. The deputies were put on paid administrative leave for awhile, a standard procedure, during the beginning of the investigation.
The sheriff said last fall that Norman pushed his way into a house, struggled with the owner, then fled. Deputies arrested him in the neighborhood. When Norman resisted arrest, the deputies used stun guns on him but said the shocks didn't seem to bother him. They performed CPR when he had breathing trouble, but he died.
Editor's note: The most popular brand of electric stun gun is Taser, so the use of a stun gun is often called tasing.
