COLONIE, NY - The family of the man who died after he was tased by Colonie police has indicated they may sue the city.
Their attorney confirms to NEWS10 that the family of Chad Brothers has filed a notice of claim, a necessary step before a lawsuit can be filed. The town and the Colonie Police Department are named.
NEWS10 was first to show you the surveillance video from October, of 32-year-old Brothers on what police call a "drug-fueled tirade," at Gold's Gym in Latham.
Brothers was tased multiple times and later died. A toxicology report shows he had steroids and PCP, in his system.
The Colonie Town Attorney says the town is prepared to defend itself against any lawsuits.
