TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a 64-year-old man who died after an officer used pepper spray and a stun gun on him while attempting to serve a misdemeanor warrant for jaywalking had a medical issue that may have contributed to his death. Police say Ollie Lee Brooks died at a hospital last Saturday. An attorney for Brooks’ family suggested Friday that police may have been overzealous in serving the warrant.
