WAUKEGAN (CBS) — The new Lake County Coroner has revised the finding of his predecessor, ruling the death of a man who was shocked with a police stun gun and allegedly beaten by police to be a homicide.
WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports Darrin Hanna, 45, died a week after he was arrested by North Chicago police in November 2011, following a domestic disturbance.
Hanna’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against North Chicago, claiming police officers severely beat Hanna, and shocked him with a stun gun for 20 minutes. They have denied police reports that he resisted arrest.
