Roger D. Hanks (13654)

5/24/2006: After a brief chase, the officers made a felony stop and handcuffed Hanks, who was combative and would not comply. When his breathing became shallow and he appeared to be in medical distress, officers rolled him onto his side, removed his handcuffs and called paramedics to the scene. Hanks was rushed to a hospital emergency room where he died. An autopsy conducted by the Medical Examiner's Office determined cause of death to be "cardiopulmonary arrest associated with a prone restraint position during a methamphetamine-induced excited delirium."
