Just after 4:00am Friday morning, police were called to the area of 2nd and Main Street in Girardville for a man who was running down the street yelling and trying to get into passing cars.

According to the Morning Call, when State Police arrived, they found the individual to be Lucas Marcus, 33, of Minersville.  After attempting to make contact with Marcus, he was then tasered and handcuffed.

While being handcuffed, Marcus then went into cardiac arrest.

Marcus was then airlifted to a hospital in Reading where he later died on Saturday.
