Taser contributed to Nevada man's death

Ryan Rich, 33, died in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 5, 2008

A jury ruled Friday on the coroner's inquest into the death of a man tasered by Nevada Highway Patrol officers. In January, law enforcement says 33 year old Ryan Rich hit several cars on I - 15. When troopers tried to take Rich into custody, he resisted. An NHP officer then tasered Rich. Rich was hospitalized and later died from a seizure disorder.

The jury ruled that while restraint and the tasing contributed to his death, a seizure disorder ultimately claimed Rich's life.
