NORTH HOLLYWOOD — An investigation is underway into the death of a man who was repeatedly tasered by an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy.

The man died after he was shocked three times by a deputy with an electric stun gun Wednesday night at the North Hollywood Red Line Subway.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says the man, who was not immediately identified, was stopped by deputies and asked repeatedly if he had a ticket.

When the man didn’t answer, a deputy grabbed the man’s hands to stop and question him. A struggle ensued and the man broke free, Whitmore said. He then reportedly raised clenched fists and charged the deputy several times. He was tasered, then shocked two more times when he got up and charged at the deputy again.
