KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The prosecutor in Knoxville has cleared two city police officers of any wrongdoing in the death of a man they used a Taser on.
District Attorney General Randy Nichols' decision not to prosecute came after a medical examiner determined Kevin DeWayne Hill died of cocaine-induced delirium in the encounter five months ago.
Hill's death has been ruled accidental.
Brenda Hill says police used the stun device on her 39-year-old son three times and says police should be better trained to take down a delirious person.
Police say Kevin Hill fought Sergeant Chris Bell and Officer Gerald George on May 22nd in a city intersection.
