Mapping Police Violence:

King spent the night in the hospital for a reaction to dental work medication. After an unknown procedure, and possibly taking Keppra the next day, King allegedly became "agitated and combative" about not being immediately released. Police were called and told King was "experiencing an emotional crisis" and being combative. Two officers arrived and tasered King once while 5-10 hospital workers tried to secure him to a gurney. He resisted, was drive-stunned four times, and was given a sedative. He went into a coma and died 7-8 days later. His mother Georgette's lawyer said that King suffered cardiac arrest. After the event, Baltimore Police Department restricted their responses to hospital emergencies. In May 2014 Georgette King was planning to sue them for excessive force.
