Man dies after Martin deputies fire Taser at him

STUART — A 31-year-old Port Salerno man died early Saturday after being arrested and possibly shot twice with a Taser stun gun, Martin County Sheriff's Office reported.

Lichtenstein's mother, Rosemarie, said doctors told her he went into cardiac arrest on his way to the hospital and suffered two strokes. She said doctors were unable to insert a pacemaker because of too much internal bleeding. She said he had two broken arms.
