Man Dies After Being Tasered by Arlington Police

Arlington Police are investigating the death of a man who died after being tasered during a struggle with police on Sunday, Jan. 17.

Shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday, police responded to the Pentagon City Metro in the 1100 block of S. Hayes Street in Arlington searching for a larceny suspect. Police report the suspect, 36-year-old William Bumbrey, was located on the metro platform and was combative and uncooperative with an officer.

According to police, he refused all verbal commands and assaulted the officer attempting to detain him. The officer deployed a Taser device, which did not have an incapacitating effect on Bumbrey who continued to struggle. A second officer arrived on scene and assisted handcuffing the suspect. The officers summoned medics who transported Bumbrey to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released as it becomes available.
