Summary (IA Generated)

Marvin Scott III — a 26-year-old Black man who died last month in a Texas jail after being restrained to a bed for several hours — died as a result of homicide, according to the medical examiner.

It was there Scott began ‘exhibiting some strange behavior’ according to Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner, and officials say he was subsequently restrained, pepper-sprayed and had a spit mask put on his face by detention officers.

According to reports, sometime during the several hours of being restrained to a bed, Scott became unresponsive and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Scott’s family says he had schizophrenia and was experiencing a mental health crisis while in police custody, and family attorney Lee Merritt claims Scott was using marijuana at the time of his arrest ‘to self-medicate after being two years diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Worth noting — the Collin County sheriff announced earlier this month that 7 detention officers who were allegedly involved in Scott’s death have been fired for violating department policies and procedures.

Scott’s family publicly called for them to be arrested as well, after watching video footage with Collin County prosecutors of Scott’s last moments.
