“SPIT IT OUT! SPIT IT OUT! SPIT IT OUT! SPIT IT OUT!”
A 42-year-old Louisiana man has died, apparently of a broken neck, after being pulled over by a police deputy.
A dash cam video shows Deputy Chris Sturdivant of the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office with his arms around Adam Stogner’s neck after the officer suspected the man of putting a small quantity of drugs into his mouth.
Stogner died along Interstate 12. Preliminary results from the coroner show that Stogner died from “severe coronary artery disease, an enlarged heart, and a fracture of the hyoid bone in his neck.”
