Elk Grove Police Conduct Investigation Into In-Custody Death

ELK GROVE (CBS13) — An investigation into an in-custody death was underway in Elk Grove on Thursday, police said.

According to the Elk Grove Police Department, a full closure of Seasons Drive between Laguna Park Drive and November Drive was in place as crews worked the scene.

The man reportedly was acting erratic and standing outside of a vehicle in the roadway, police said. Officers tried to detain him, but he allegedly resisted and began attacking the officers.

Once officers were able to detain the man, he reportedly slammed his own head against the concrete and became physically resistive toward the officers again, the department said.

Elk Grove police said the man was taken to the hospital for medical clearance before incarceration, but at around 2:45 p.m., he suffered a medical emergency and was pronounced dead soon after.

His identity has not yet been released.

None of the officers were injured during the arrest.
