BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky State Police say a man involved in a weekend rollover accident has died after officers used a stun gun on him when he became combative.
State Police Trooper B.J. Eaton said Sunday that 52-year-old Michael Roll of Bowling Green was pronounced dead at the Medical Center at Bowling Green.
His statement says two State Police officers and a local sheriff’s deputy found Roll’s vehicle overturned Saturday night on William Natcher Parkway near Bowling Green. Eaton says Roll appeared intoxicated and became combative with officers, who shot him with a stun gun and he became unconscious.
The release says an autopsy was planned Sunday.
Eaton said in a telephone interview later that both Roll and the officers involved were white.
