SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Authorities have released video of an in-custody death at the Sacramento County Jail in late October and early November.
The incident started on October 28 with a call about a person jumping on and damaging vehicles near Watt Avenue and A Street in North Highlands. Other calls came in from a nearby business describing a similar suspect threatening customers.
Sac County Sheriff’s deputies soon arrived and arrested 36-year-old Marshall Miles, who they say was showing “objective signs” of intoxication.
Authorities say Miles continued being uncooperative at the jail and struggled with jailers throughout the booking process. Shortly after being placed in a cell, deputies noticed Miles was not breathing. He was taking to a local hospital in extremely critical condition. He was pronounced dead at the hospital on November 1.
According to the report, preliminary toxicology results showed Miles had methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana in his system at the time of the incident. More comprehensive toxicology tests and a full autopsy was completed by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
