YORK, Neb. (AP) - York County, its sheriff and a hospital have been sued by the mother of a man who died in May 2014 after being arrested for driving while under the influence of drugs.

The lawsuit filed by Patricia Jensen says jailers knew her son, 24-year-old Tyler Crespi, had taken drugs but didn’t give him proper medical care. Sheriff Dale Radcliff declined to comment on the lawsuit.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1ZknxHG ) that the lawsuit says jailers monitored Crespi in his cell instead of getting him medical treatment. The lawsuit also says Crespi eventually was found unresponsive and taken to the hospital, where he died of an overdose.
