Man Dies After Being Hit by Stun Gun

January 16, 2012 - Authorities in San Bernardino County were investigating the death of a 43-year-old man who died in police custody shortly after a stun gun was used on him during his arrest.
Officers with the Colton Police Department responded to the scene of a “disturbance” report in the 1100 block of South Mohave Dr. in Colton around 5 p.m. Saturday.
Hutalio Serrano, of Colton, allegedly refused to follow an officer’s commands and “actively resisted” the officer, according to a statement from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, which is investigating the death.
An officer then deployed “an electronic control device” on the man, but the measure was ineffective. Three officers managed to handcuff Serrano, but the 260-pound man continued to resist, authorities said.
Shortly after being taken into custody, Serrano suffered a medical emergency and was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m.
Authorities said an autopsy will be performed later this week to determine a cause of death.

Among the many courses which CTTA provides worldwide, is the Rapid Integrated Survival Kombat System. This three level course is scheduled monthly at CTTA’s Montreal training facility but it is delivered to larger training groups in the United States on a regular basis.
Hundreds of  law enforcement professionals have been trained in the R.I.S.K. Defensive Tactics System.
Each level of the R.I.S.K. Defensive Tactics course is 16 hours and there are now seven instructors in the USA who have been certified by CTTA Master Instructors. Upon the successful completion of the course CTTA will issue a certificate to each participant.
The R.I.S.K. System is a highly effective combat system specifically developed for law enforcement and security professionals. Based on human anatomy and biomechanics, its effectiveness is due to the simplicity of both instinctive as well as learned techniques.
The objective of the R.I.S.K. Defensive Tactics System is to train the participant in the various aspects of physical confrontation so that he can better defend himself in dealing with different types of aggressors, who may be armed or unarmed, and restrain an uncooperative individual while performing an arrest.
This system prides itself in the effective use of recognized “Use of Force Continuums” in order to avoid unnecessary liability issues for both the officer and the department alike.

Some of the skills which participants will acquire are the following:
• Defense against strikes
• Efficient striking techniques
• Restraint techniques
• Ground control and handcuffing
• Ground defense
• Defense against edged weapons
• Handgun and long gun disarming
• Intervention in confined areas
Training courses can be customized according to specific needs.
