Police said while they were investigating a report that the man tried to strangle the woman, he ran off. Police said they caught up with him a block away, and when the man resisted arrest, he was stunned with a Taser gun and taken into custody.
Just after being placed in custody, police said the man “coded.” Police and emergency personnel gave the man first aid. He was rushed to the Miami County Medical Center, where he died.
Authorities identified him as Travis L. Maupin, 32.
