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.
