A 35-year-old man who was shocked with a taser Sunday morning during a confrontation with sheriff's deputies in Marysville is on life support at a local hospital.

According to the Yuba County Sheriff's Department, 35-year-old Chance Dale Thompson was tasered early Sunday morning when he allegedly attacked deputies as they tried to confront him about odd behavior.

A security guard patrolling the outside of Western Aggregate in Marysville called authorities just after 2 a.m. Sunday to report a trespasser. When deputies arrived Thompson was on a rock wall at the business, wearing only pants and shoes. He was sweating and kicking the air.

Thompson repeatedly tried to fight a deputy and was tased at least two times. After he was tased Thompson stopped breathing and CPR was administered. Thompson however never regained consciousness and was transported to Rideout Medical Center where he remains.

According to CBS Sacramento, family members of Thompson are preparing to remove him from life support.
