Two Shawnee County Sheriff's deputies involved in a tasering incident at the Topeka Goodyear plant are back on the job.
Lt. Martha Lutz confirmed the two returned to regular duty.
Deputies were called to Goodyear March 29th. Security officers said Walter Haake, Jr. was being uncooperative, refusing medical attention and not getting out of his vehicle. The deputies ended up tasering Haake three times. He later died of what the coroner deemed an accident, brought on by a combination of existing medical conditions while being handcuffed, face down on the ground.
A KBI investigation continues. It's not known how much longer it will take.
Lutz says the deputies returned to work per the department's personnel policy, but she declined to elaborate.
