Says the suspect had troubled history with law enforcement since the 80s

ALBUQUERQUE — Roswell Police Chief Dennis Kintigh says the public treasury was "looted" and officers were vilified by a $1.25 million settlement with the family of a mentally ill man who died after being Tasered multiple times during a scuffle with them.

Kintigh called the death of Javier Aguilar a tragedy, but said Aguilar "had a long and troubled history with law enforcement going back to the 1980s."
