The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat says Thursday’s award came in a lawsuit filed against the city of Rohnert Park over the 2017 death of Branch Wroth.

Rohnert Park police were called to a hotel by reports of a guest acting strangely and tried to take Wroth into custody on an existing arrest warrant.

Wroth resisted. Records say during a scuffle, the 41-year-old Forestville man was shocked six times by a Taser and handcuffed.
