The wife of a Galveston man who died two days after being shocked by a Taser is suing the city and county of Galveston and the manufacturer of the device.
Sabrina Allen, wife of 34-year-old Raymond Luther Allen Jr., filed a lawsuit in Galveston federal court last week on behalf of her three children. She accuses police and sheriff's deputies of violating her husband's civil rights by shooting him with a Taser and allegedly causing his death Feb. 27.
The lawsuit accuses Galveston police of tacitly condoning excessive force and says the department has a history of excessive force complaints.
