Man dies after being pepper sprayed, shocked by RCMP at Whistler restaurant

British Columbia's police watchdog is investigating the death of a man who was pepper sprayed and shocked with a stun gun by Mounties on Sunday.

RCMP said the incident happened in Whistler at about 11 a.m. PT, after people called to report an intoxicated man causing a disturbance at a local business.

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO) has since confirmed the man was inside Stonesedge Kitchen in the Whistler Village. The restaurant was open at the time.

"We do understand there were many witnesses," said Ron MacDonald, chief civilian director of the IIO.
