Georgia electrified

On 20 November 2015 Chase Sherman, 32, died in a car in Coweta County, Georgia.

Together with his fiancée, Patti Galloway, and his parents, Kevin and Mary Ann Sherman, Chase was returning from a five day holiday.

Either prior to or during the holiday he smoked synthetic marijuana. It didn’t agree with him.

At Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, from where they were due to fly home, Chase started having hallucinations, and became terrified of flying. So the group rented a car to drive to their home in Florida.

Chase never made it home.

After Chase became very agitated in the car – he was biting his fiancée – his mother called the police for help.

Three officers showed up, ordered everyone out of the car, and a rough-and-tumble then ensued, with Chase struggling against the police and them trying to taser him.

The police seem to have tasered him at least 15 times.

His death from a police multiple-tasering was captured on video.

The Coweta district attorney’s office has now decided not press charges against the officers responsible for his death.
