Man dies after collapsing while fighting Oklahoma police

The Associated Press - March 31, 2017 11:22 am

KINGSTON, Okla. (AP) – Authorities are investigating the death of a man who collapsed while fighting with law officers in southern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says the man died Thursday after fighting with Kingston police officers and a county sheriff’s deputy. The man’s name hasn’t been released.
The OSBI says the law officers and medical personnel were called to a car wash where a man was in a ditch and appeared to be suffering a heart attack. The man was found unresponsive, but regained consciousness and began fighting with officers before he again fell unresponsive and stopped breathing.
He was taken to a Madill hospital where he was pronounced dead.
