NEW CASTLE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities in east-central Indiana are investigating the death of a New Castle man who died after being held in the Henry County jail.

Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs tells The (Muncie) Star Press (https://tspne.ws/1QxW5ob ) that the county’s major investigations team is investigating the death of 32-year-old Brian L. Gosser. The Marion County coroner’s office said Monday that Gosser died Friday of “multiple blunt force trauma injuries.”

Gosser was arrested Feb. 17 on drunken driving charges. Records show emergency workers were called to the county jail for an incident involving Gosser on March 1. The prosecutor says Gosser was “involved in a fight” at the jail sometime before Thursday night.

Gosser was taken to the Henry County Hospital on Thursday night and then transferred to an Indianapolis hospital, where he died.
