SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Police say a Sioux Falls man who became unresponsive after police used a stun gun on him has died at a hospital.

Twenty-eight-year-old Joshua Jay Langley was arrested last Wednesday at Motel 6 in Sioux Falls after police were called to a disturbance in his room.  The Argus Leader  says police used a stun gun on Langley when he refused their commands.

He was handcuffed and became unresponsive. Paramedics were able to regain a pulse and he was taken to the hospital. Police spokesman Sam Clemens says Langley died Saturday. Police say officers found methamphetamine in Langley's room.

An autopsy is expected to be done Tuesday.
