Reginald Doucet Jr., 25, was shot early Friday morning by a member of the Los Angeles Police Department. The ex-college football player and model took a cab ride home after having too much to drink, but when he arrived at his apartment, he didn't have any cash. To prove to the cab driver that he would return, he took his clothes off. And things only got worse from there. He was locked out of his apartment and reportedly started yelling and acting erratically.
The cab driver called the police, and things escalated from there. A police officer with only 17 months on the force shot Doucet. He died at the hospital.
