BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a man involved in a weekend rollover accident has died after officers used a stun gun on him when he became combative.

State Police Trooper B.J. Eaton said Sunday that 52-year-old Michael Roll of Bowling Green was pronounced dead at the Medical Center at Bowling Green.

His statement says two State Police officers and a local sheriff’s deputy found Roll’s vehicle overturned Saturday night on William Natcher Parkway near bowling Green. Eaton says Roll appeared intoxicated and became combative with officers, who shot him with a stun gun and he became unconscious.

The release says an autopsy was planned Sunday.

Eaton said in a telephone interview later that both Roll and the officers involved were white.
