David Glowczenski (2059)



2/4/2004: Glowczenski and his extensive history of mental health issues, including prior assaults on officers, were well known to the four police as they responded to 911 calls about the victim appearing at a local school. The encounter escalated into a five-person struggle to get the victim cuffed and on his stomach. Physical evidence showed he was Tased nine separate times, as well as pepper sprayed and zip-tied, before he stopped breathing. Glowczenski's family has been legally active including filing a $1B suit against Taser International. http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/new-york/nyedce/2:2004cv04052/235256/140
