Broward Sheriff's deputies say 41-year-old James Garland was spotted naked wandering through traffic waving his shirt after 4 a.m. Friday. After officers used the stun gun on him he was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

Police say Garland was a registered sex offender who had been arrested 10 times in Broward County since 2002, mostly for cocaine-related charges.
