KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The mother of a 39-year-old man who died after a struggle with police at an East Knoxville intersection this week accused the officers Thursday of using excessive force.

A Knoxville Police Department spokesman, however, said the officers used "great restraint" Tuesday night while trying to subdue Kevin DeWayne Hill, who died a few minutes after he was shocked three times by a Taser.
