Denis Chabot was visiting a friend at a motel in north Houston when he got agitated. The motel manager and motel security guard called the problem into the Houston Police Department. The manager and guard wanted Chabot to leave.
When officers arrived, Chabot tried to leave. The unidentified police officers didn't want him to leave at that point ... so they unleashed their taser gun on him. A short time later Chabot was dead.
"His death could have been prevented if (HPD) had acted with sympathy toward someone who had problems with drugs," said the victim's brother, Christian Chabot.
Family members are questioning the arrest protocol of the Houston police. His brother was 5-foot-5 and 125 pounds, Christian Chabot said,
"How much force is needed to put a guy that size down? My brother's death is a tragedy and he met an untimely and unjust end."
