Charles Keiser (2529)

11/25/2004: Troopers responding to Thanksgiving Day reports of a bulldozer blocking a highway found Keiser, irrational and uncooperative. In an extended physical struggle that moved into a nearby swampy area, multiple officers pepper-sprayed, tasered and wrestled Keiser trying to get him under control. His head became submerged, "whether because of his own actions or the officers’" was in dispute, and Keiser drowned. The family settled for $750K.
