BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge coroner has ruled as accidental a 32-year-old man’s death, which the coroner said was caused by taking multiple drugs at once and not by the stun guns police used to subdue him.

Authorities say Kevin Bajoie, of Zachary, was involved in a fight in Scotlandville, where responding officers used stun guns to subdue him.

Bajoie died later that day at Lane Regional Medical Center.

Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge police spokesman, said two officers who fired the stun guns were placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1WmBLbF) Dr. William “Beau” Clark ruled Thursday that Bajoie’s death was an accident due to drug intoxication after he digested methamphetamine, amphetamine and synthetic marijuana.
