— Norman police say a man who allegedly resisted arrest has died after officers used a stun gun on him.

Police said the Oklahoma Highway Patrol asked for assistance early Sunday after a naked man was involved in a car accident. Police Chief Keith Humphrey said the man, 66-year-old George Morris of Oklahoma City, refused to communicate with officers and tried to walk across Interstate 35.

Humphrey said officers used a stun gun to gain control of Morris.

Morris was taken to a Norman hospital where he later died. Humphrey said the cause of death is not yet known.

The death remains under investigation.
