Man Dies in Police Custody After Arrest at Dead & Co. Concert

CHULA VISTA, California (July 28, 2016) — The death of a man in his 50s following his arrest for public intoxication at a Dead & Co. concert is under investigation by the San Diego County Medical Examiner.

The Chula Vista Police Department arrested the man who was attending the concert at the Sleep Train Amphitheater Wednesday night when he was unable to provide security guards a ticket.

He was escorted out of the concert, but attempted to run away, then he resisted and struggled with security. Police were there to assist security guards and he was arrested on charges of public intoxication just after 7:30 p.m. last night.

Police say he was evaluated by medical personnel who determined there were no serious medical issues present. The man reportedly fell asleep as he sat in a chair while police were filling out paperwork. When the snoring stopped police noticed he was no longer responsive and he died about 9:15 p.m.

An autopsy will be conducted by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Additionally, the incident is under investigation by the Chula Vista police Crimes of Violence and Professional Standard and the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing procedures to determine liability for the man’s death.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
