Taser cam:April 19/08,OXFORD, Ohio...The family of a Miami graduate left in critical condition after being shocked by a police Taser released a statement Tuesday, saying they know the truth will be revealed.
The family of a Kevin Piskura said in a press release that they are sure an independent investigation into the incident will reveal who was at fault.
Police said Piskura tried to interfere with the arrest of a Mundelein, Ill., man early Saturday outside an Oxford bar, forcing officers to use their Taser.
Police said they called a life squad when Piskura had trouble breathing, and he was taken to an Oxford hospital and then by helicopter to University Hospital in Cincinnati.
The Oxford police chief announced the Butler County Sheriff's Office would conduct the internal investigation into the incident.
Piskura's family said they wanted privacy and prayers for him until the investigation is complete.
At least two different investigations into the tasing are expected to continue, from both Oxford Police and the Butler County Prosecutor's Office.
