Ohio Man Claims Sheriff's Deputies Tased Him While Having A Seizure

Casey Stack

38-year-old Coventry Township man Casey Stack is alleging that Summit County Sheriff's deputies mistook an epileptic seizure he had during an arrest Friday for an assault on one of the deputies. Stack further alleged that, after his arrest, he was incarcerated in the Summit County Jail over the weekend where was deprived of his medication and suffered two more seizures that were ignored by deputies.

Sheriff's officials contend that they were unaware that Stack was suffering from any medical condition and that deputies acted quickly to defend themselves and restrain Stack. The deputies' use of their tasters during the arrest of Stack is being reviewed internally. The report filed by the deputies makes no mention of Stack's claim that he was having seizures during his arrest. Stack's driver's license, which he said he gave to the deputies before his arrest, notes a medical condition on the back.
