No Charges For Teen Taser Death

A prosecutor in Michigan says Bay City police will not be charged in the death of a 15-year-old who died after an officer used a Taser on him.

Bay County Prosecutor Kurt Asbury said in a statement Wednesday there isn't any evidence that the officers committed any criminal act.

Brett Elder died March 22 after an officer fired a Taser at him. Police say Elder was intoxicated and took an aggressive stance toward officers who were responding to a report of a fight.

The Bay City Times reports an autopsy found a two-part cause of death -- the use of the Taser and what it called "alcohol-induced excited delirium."
