The Indianapolis Star reported Sunday that Henry O. Bryant, 35, died around 10:30 p.m. Friday at O'Charley's restaurant.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers had used a Taser gun and CS gas, which is similar to tear gas, to subdue Bryant, said spokesman Sgt. Paul Thompson.
Officers responded to the restaurant to investigate a report of a man with a gun. Police said they determined the mad had a firearms permit, the newspaper reported.
However, the man reportedly started fighting with officers, who used a Taser on him and arrested him for public intoxication.
An Amnesty International report said worldwide there were 150 deaths from stun gun devices from mid-2001 through early 2006.
