A Santa Rita jail inmate Tased twice by guards during an altercation Monday night has died.

Authorities say 50-year old Martin Harrison of Oakland was Tased after he charged at the deputy in a minimum-security area of the jail.

Harrison had been arrested last Friday on a warrant for driving under the influence.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
