KCSO investigating in-custody death in Boron

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating a man's death, after he stopped breathing while in custody Wednesday.

On Dec. 13 around 6:00 p.m. deputies were called out to the 24000 block of Juniper Avenue in Boron after reports of a man threatening neighbors.

Deputies say the man was under the influence of drugs and he was touching himself inappropriately. When deputies tried to arrest the man, he started to resist, according to KCSO.

With help from a bystander, they were able to arrest him. But KCSO says once the man was handcuffed, they realized he wasn't breathing.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

If you know anything about this case, call KCSO at 861-3110.
