The Shawnee County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday it is investigating the death of a Goodyear employee who died after being tased by deputies.
The Sheriff's Office said it was called to the Goodyear plant at about 11:17 pm Saturday. Goodyear security officers told deputies they were trying to keep an employee from leaving the plant because they thought he was unable to safely drive.
The employee resisted officials and a deputy tased the man, who then became unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
The coroner's office is investigating to determine the cause of death.
