MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (AP/WBOC)— The man Tasered by Rehoboth Beach, Del. police in a video that went viral has been killed in a hit-and-run crash in central Pennsylvania and police have arrested his girlfriend in connection with his death.
Thirty-six-year-old Esther Brubaker of Mechanicsburg is charged in Cumberland County with homicide by vehicle and accidents involving death or injury.
Police allege that she struck and killed 34-year-old Jeremy Anderson with her minivan outside their home and then drove off, leaving him there.
District Attorney Dave Freed said the victim had noticeable tire marks on his body when he was found at about 5:45 p.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials said neighbors reported hearing an argument before the crash.
Brubaker remains in custody; court documents don't indicate whether she has an attorney.
Anderson was arrested in Rehoboth Beach for disorderly conduct in early April, and it was all captured on a cellphone. A Delaware Department of Justice investigation into the incident concluded a Rehoboth Beach police officer was justified by law to Taser and kick Anderson who was resisting arrest.
