UNIVERSITY PLACE — An agitated man died after fighting with deputies who arrested him Sunday night in University Place.
Residents reported the man had a screwdriver and was screaming for police in an apartment building parking lot.
Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says deputies found the man out of control, fighting and biting. They used a Taser to take him into custody. He was taken to Tacoma General Hospital where he died.
The medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death for 44-year-old Ronald Hillstrom.
The News Tribune reported that Hillstrom had prior convictions for assault, kidnapping and drugs.
