Prosecutor: South NJ man dies shortly after arrest
HADDON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - October 1, 2012 (WPVI) -- Authorities are trying to determine what caused the death of a southern New Jersey man who lost consciousness shortly after he was arrested and placed in the back of a police cruiser.
Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk says 37-year-old Shron Norman of Paulsboro was taken into custody early Saturday after he created a disturbance at a chicken restaurant in Haddon Township. He then struggled with the two responding officers, leaving one of them slightly injured.
The officers performed CPR on Norman after he passed out, but he died a short time later at a hospital.
Faulk said an autopsy performed Sunday revealed no evidence of trauma to Norman's body. He says the county medical examiner is awaiting the results of toxicology tests before determining a cause of death.
