A Coventry man says that sheriff deputies confused his epileptic seizure for an attack causing them to use a stun gun on him four times.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Casey Stack, 38, spent the weekend in Summit County Jail after being arrested for assault on Friday.
Stack believes that charges should be dropped and deputies should have better training to detect medical conditions.
Sheriff's officials say they were unaware that Stack had an epileptic seizure and deputies simply acted quickly in defense.
Deputies believed Stack was attacking them after being issued a citation for a car crash. He was being cited for reckless operation, assault and having a fictitious licence plate.
Stark told the Beacon Journal that he was denied medication for more than a day while in jail and suffered two more seizures.
He was released on a $3,000 bond after he appeared in Barberton Municipal Court on Monday.
