Police say they believe the first probe malfunctioned, based on there being very little reaction from Harvey, so officers deployed a second taser.

After trying to fight off the officers, police say Harvey passed out on the floor.

Police say Harvey was transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Harvey died three days later and his family is questioning whether excessive force was a factor in his death.
