SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Spokane County medical examiner's office says a man who died in the custody of sheriff's deputies in June died of oxygen deprivation to the brain.
    
The office ruled the death of 34-year-old Will Berger a homicide.
    
The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/Hjoakn) two deputies shocked Berger with a Taser and wrestled him to the ground in a choke hold after he became agitated at a gym and ran into traffic.
    
The case remains under investigation by the Washington State Patrol.
