SAN ANTONIO - A 35-year-old man died Friday after San Antonio police used pepper spray and a Taser to subdue him.
Officers went to Sergio Galvan's home on the city's South Side before dawn after his wife called 911 several times for help, police said in a story in the San Antonio Express-News online edition.
The woman emerged from the home when police arrived and said she needed help with her husband. Galvan ran from the house, and the officers pursued, police said.
Galvan attacked the officers, police spokesman Lt. Richard Martinez said, prompting them to use pepper spray and a Taser.
But as Galvan was being handcuffed, the officers noticed he was unresponsive. They began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until emergency medical crews arrived, but Galvan was never revived.
