OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police say a man who was hospitalized after being arrested earlier this year has died.

Police said Monday 43-year-old Lorez Rayfond Chambers died Sunday at a hospital where he was taken after being arrested on June 9.

Capt. Paco Balderrama says Chambers was arrested by officers responding to a call about a suspicious person in a yard in northwest Oklahoma City.

Balderrama says the officers suspected Chambers was intoxicated and fought with police when they began putting handcuffs on him.

He was eventually taken to jail, then to a hospital following a medical screening at the jail.



Results of the medical screening and a suspected cause of death have not been released.
