CARPENTERSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The death of a Carpentersville man after a traffic stop by police is being investigated by the Illinois State Police Public Integrity Unit.

Joshua Paul died Aug. 18 at Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin after he suffered a cut on chin during a struggle with officers. The Daily Herald in Arlington Heights reports (https://bit.ly/XNmGXI) officers suspected Paul was operating the vehicle with a revoked driver’s license. The officers determined he was wanted for previous traffic violations.

Paramedics took the 31-year-old Paul to the hospital for treatment of the laceration. There, Paul’s condition deteriorated and he died several hours later.

In a statement, Carpentersville police officials say the department is sharing “all pertinent information regarding this matter” with Illinois State Police investigators.

The officers involved in the arrest remain on duty.
