FPD Patch_thumbA man in the custody of Flagstaff Police died early Friday morning, and Flagstaff Police are asking for an outside agency to investigate the situation.

The decedent was identified as 49-year old Michael Daryle Rose, a white male. According to the Flagstaff Police, Rose contacted 911 late Thursday night saying he didn’t feel well.

But when emergency personnel, and police, arrived on-scene, the subject became combative with everyone, and after one officer was punched int he face, he was tasered twice.

He eventually settled down, only to become combative again, and he was evidently forced into a police cruiser. This was after being treated for abrasions by medical personnel.

At the Coconino County Detention Facility, Rose became combative once again, but soon became unresponsive. Personnel noticed he had stopped breathing. Efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful and at 12:58 early Friday, he was pronounced dead.

Again, there will be an investigation into the 49-year old man’s death and Flagstaff Police have asked for another agency to do that.
