Officer Rosario Harrera with LAPD media relations claims that the LAPD had reasons to tase Sledge. SUP69 obtained this information from LAPD. Sledge was handcuffed to a gurney and placed in the ambulance. He tried to stand and broke free of the handcuffs and the floor lock that the gurney was attached to. An officer tased him once to try and subdue Sledge but it did not work. Several officers then joined in and was able to subdue Sledge. This all occurred inside the ambulance according to LAPD. He was taken to the hospital afterwards and passed away 5 days later.
