It happened Sunday night just after 11:00 PM. Yellowstone County Sheriff's Deputy John Smith was off-duty while driving on 13th Street West near Avenue E when he noticed a naked man running through a neighborhood. Smith notified the police department and assisting officers were sent. Police said the suspect entered a house not believed to be his own before he stole Deputy Smith's 1992 Chevy van.
Officers tased Bain multiple times - twice in the back and once on the leg - in an effort to subdue him. The officers then put their tasers in drive-stun mode, a less intense shock.
Officers finally subdued Bain, but when they arrived at the detention facility, he began to fight officers. He was then tased a fourth time and placed in a restraint chair.
Medical personnel checked Bain, but shortly after being placed in a holding cell the suspect went into cardiac arrest. The suspect was taken to St. Vincent Healthcare and according to a press release was listed in critical condition, but a caller who identified himself as a family member informed KULR-8 Tuesday evening that Bain had died.
Officers said the suspect appeared to be under the influence and they had no choice but to try and apprehend him.
As with any "use of force" case, whether a suspect is hurt or not, police will investigate what happened to determine if their actions were appropriate.
