Family Blames Man's Death On Being 'Hogtied'

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The family of a man who died in police custody is calling for policy change and officers to be held accountable.

This all stems from an incident back on September 8th, 2018. Greensboro Police say Marcus Deon Smith was "suicidal" and "disoriented" and running in and out of traffic in downtown Greensboro. The press release from September says while officers were attempting to transport him for mental evaluation, the subject became combative and collapsed. Both EMS and on-scene officers began rendering aid and Smith was transported to a hospital where he later died.
