A man is dead after a struggle with Richmond County deputies Friday night.
Deputies attempted to apprehend George Harvey, 39, of Augusta, at Olive Road and Gordon Highway around 8 p.m. Friday, where he went into what authorities suspect was “cardiac arrest,” a news release said.
Deputy Coroner Kenneth Boose said Sunday that Harvey entered cardiac arrest after deputies deployed a Taser.
Medical personnel were notified and deputies performed CPR on Harvey until they arrived. He was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:47 p.m., Boose said.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will look into the death.
