Andrew Hall, 43, died following a “violent struggle” with up to six police officers in Bradford, UK.
Andrew Hall was taken to hospital after consuming a large quantity of brandy and prescription drugs in September 2016. He allegedly slapped a nurse and was moved to a police station, where he was restrained during an altercation.
The whole incident was captured on CCTV, which was shown during the inquest on April 21, 2021. The video showed up to six officers struggling with Mr Hall, delivering a number of punches and knee strikes. Hall strikes his head on the floor a number of times. Hall was eventually double-handcuffed and put in leg restraints before he was taken back to hospital on a stretcher.
Hall was “still struggling” and being restrained by several police officers while he was examined by doctors. A decision was taken to sedate Hall, after which doctors could not resuscitate him. It was later found that he had a undiagnosed severe heart condition. In April 2021 Hall’s family said they want justice for him.
Police officers used “justified, necessary and proportionate” force to restrain a man who later died, an inquest jury has found.
