Mentally ill man dies after struggle with Richmond police

Uriah Samson Dach, 26, Richmond, CA

... officers used pepper spray, stun guns and batons to try to subdue the 6-foot-3, 350-pound Dach, police said. The officers and Dach struggled in the center, on the front porch and in the driveway, Gagan said. The officers called for backup, and when two more officers arrived, all four were able to pin Dach to the ground and handcuff him, Gagan said. Once he was on the ground, however, the officers realized that Dach had stopped breathing, Gagan said. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead at Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo.
