FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Fort Worth police say a man found hanging in a city jail cell has died.

Police Sgt. William Hix tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1vGSBa7 ) 23-year-old Gregory Hooper of Cleburne died Sunday at an area hospital.

City police arrested Hooper on Aug. 18 over allegations he choked his girlfriend and interfered with an emergency call.

Hix says Hooper used the drawstring from his athletic shorts to hang himself later that morning. He says jail personnel found Hooper during normal rounds.

Medical personnel resuscitated Hooper and took him to John Peter Smith Hospital in serious condition.
