Houston Cops Prevent Suicide By Tasering Naked Man to Death


A man died shortly after sheriff's deputies used a Taser on him at his Montgomery County home Saturday, authorities said.

Deputies received a call about 7 a.m. of a possible suicide attempt at a residence in the 6500 block of Golden Oaks Drive. Robert Lee Welch, 40, had been pushing people there and would not respond to family members, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies approached and tried to talk to Welch, who was not wearing clothing, authorities said. When Welch wouldn't respond, deputies tried to detain the man, who resisted and struggled, authorities said.

Deputies then used a Taser to help control the man, authorities said. Paramedics at the scene began treating Welch, who was not breathing and did not have a pulse.
Later the same cops responded to a call of a scared kitten in a tree. Thankfully, the police were able to get the cat down to the ground, and back into it's owners arms by shooting it dead from the branches.
