APNewsBreak: Family settles lawsuit in Taser death of unarmed, mentally ill Ohio man

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 3, 2014 4:43 PM EDT

The Indiana family of an unarmed, mentally ill Ohio man who died after police shocked him seven times with a Taser stun gun has settled its wrongful-death lawsuit in the case.

An attorney for 39-year-old Doug Boucher's family told The Associated Press on Thursday the lawsuit against the city of Mason and two police officers was settled for $375,000.

The city's attorney didn't respond to requests for comment.

Boucher died in December 2009 after a confrontation with two officers outside a Mason convenience store.

Mason police said at the time only that Boucher had died after being shocked by a stun gun

Documents obtained by the AP revealed that Boucher had been stunned seven times, and that he was immobile and face-down on the ground for five of them.
