Surveillance video showing a man fatally shocked to death by officers with a stun gun has been released.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Nelly Miles said in a statement emailed to news outlets Wednesday that Auburn police arrested 30-year-old Charles Williams on January 27.

Miles said Williams was arrested on charges of battery and cruelty to children following a fight at a home. She said he became combative outside the Barrow County jail, fighting with deputies and damaging a patrol car from the inside. GBI spokesman Jesse Maddox said Williams moved his handcuffs from behind his back to his front.

Sometime during the altercation, deputies used a stun gun on Williams. Maddox says Williams stopped breathing and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

An autopsy has been performed, but results are pending.
