A federal wrongful death lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the death of a Forest Park man following an incident when a Taser was used on him nearly a year ago.
Family members of Corey McGinnis, Sr., 35, are suing North College Hill police Sgt. Ryan Schrand and the North College Hill Police Department for an undisclosed amount of money.
A testing report on the Taser used in the incident obtained by 9 On Your Side’s I-Team showed that the weapon was operating outside the manufacturer’s specifications, indicating the Taser may have sent more electricity into McGinnis’ body than it was designed to.
