Andrew Torres (5544)



8/9/2010: The family of Torres called police to report that he'd neglected his medication and was losing touch with reality. Police arrived and quickly tasered him, which killed him. A suit filed by the family asserts that the police entered the house without cause or permission, escalated the level of violence, exaggerated the resistance Torres put up, and withheld life-saving measures. The family settled for $500K. http://www.wyff4.com/news/local-news/greenville-news/Family-sues-city-of-Greenville-over-man-s-death/16196966
