Holt Man Dies in Police Custody
According to Tuscaloosa Police, officers responded to a call Friday night at Crescent East Apartments, where a suspect (unofficially identified as Anthony Ware) who was wanted for an active Attempting to Elude warrant was supposedly located and armed. Upon arrival, the suspect is said to have fled into the woods, leading to a chase.
The suspect is said to have resisted arrest when he was caught, and officers sprayed him with OC (Oleoresin Capsicum), which helped officers cuff the suspect. As they began walking out of the woods, the suspect allegedly collapsed, and officers began CPR while waiting for called medical personnel to arrive on an emergency status.
The suspect was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center while CPR was continuously performed, but he was pronounced dead at 10:42pm. The death is under investigation.
