UPDATE 4/29:

Green Bay Police say a 46-year-old man who died during his arrest Friday caused several disturbances on the city's west side.

Police say the Brown County Communication Center received multiple 911 calls Friday about a man who was pounding on doors and chasing people in the 1400 block of Admiral Court.

A short time later, police were called to the 1400 block of Shirley St for a report of a man who was yelling and screaming that someone was after him.

Officers located the man in the 1400 block of Shirley St. Police said a taser was deployed and the man was handcuffed.

"The officers observed the subject was in distress and began life-saving measures," police say.

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department arrived on scene and continued life-saving measures.

The man was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

Police say the man was a 46-year-old Green Bay resident. He did not live in either west-side neighborhood.

Police say the man had been arrested last week for a disturbance at a different home in the city.

The Appleton Police Department is investigating. State law requires an outside agency to investigate officer-involved deaths.

PREVIOUS REPORT

A man arrested by Green Bay police died after having a medical emergency on Friday.

Green Bay police said officers were called to the 1400 block of Admiral Ct. and eventually to the 1400 block of Shirley St. on the west side of the city for a report of a man causing several disturbances.

When officers arrived on scene, Green Bay police said the man would not listen to officers commands and was acting erratically. The man was eventually arrested and then had a medical emergency.

An officer attempted to provide medical help to the man who was sent to the hospital where he later died.

The Appleton Police Department is investigating the incident because state law requires an outside agency to look into the incident if a person dies while in police custody.
