SourceErich Stelzer, 24, was tased by cops following a vicious assault on his date Maegan Tapley in Cohasset, Mass. The 6-foot-8-inch Stelzer allegedly stabbed Tapley repeatedly, and although she survived the horrific attack she could lose an eye.
On arriving at Stelzer’s residence at around 10 p.m., Cohasset Police said he slashed his veterinary assistant date.
A spokesman said: “In an effort to rescue the victim and disarm Stelzer, Cohasset police officers used Tasers to subdue Stelzer.”
Stelzer became unresponsive soon after he was repeatedly tased by officers as they were trying to take him into custody, and stopped breathing while being transported to the hospital.
A source claimed Stelzer was in an “altered mental state” or suffering a “possible mental health issue” at the time of the domestic violence incident.
