A 22-year old Elkhart man, Delano Smith who apparently suffered from schizophrenia and manic depression, died while in police custody in January and police tasers contributed to the death. That was the conclusion of an investigation conducted by the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office... Smith was shot by police tasers a total of three times. One shot may have lasted as long as 20-seconds, while another seems to have malfunctioned and produced no shock at all. ... An autopsy concluded that the confrontation with police and the restraint that officers used were contributing factors in Smith’s death. ... the primary cause of Smith’s death was “excited delirium...” ...

So multiple taser deployments, both ineffective and contributing to death, all in one incident.
If the taser were a horse, the farmer would have shot it by now.
