MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - Pike County Sheriff Mark Shepherd says a 39-year-old McComb man arrested on a disorderly conduct charge was dead when his family came to bond him out of jail.

Shepherd tells The Enterprise-Journal (https://bit.ly/1ubosPM ) that an autopsy and toxicology tests will be conducted Monday on John Wayne Gill.

Shepherd says Gill was arrested about 1 a.m. Saturday. He says that Gill fought at the jail with officers who used pepper spray on him, then cleaned him up.

Chief Deputy Steve Rushing says Gill was slumped over when officers went to get him about 10 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say the cause of death was not obvious.
