Mario Gonzalez

CASE №00070
NAME: Mario Gonzalez
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Mario Gonzalez, 26, died on April 19, 2021, after he was restrained by police officers in Alameda, Northern California.

According to police, they received a 911 call about a disoriented man in the park who appeared to be drunk. Police talked with Gonzalez for nearly an hour before finally throwing him to the ground and pinning him down for over five minutes.

Gonzalez was lying face-down on some wood chips and was heard shouting and grunting as the officers used their body weight to control him. One officer seemed to put an elbow on his neck and a knee on his shoulder. When Gonzalez stopped breathing, the officers rolled him over onto his back and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but he was pronounced dead at a hospital.

In June 2021 the family of Mario Gonzalez has filed a wrongful death claim against the city of Alameda alleging the officers detained Gonzalez without reasonable suspicion and caused him to die of asphyxia.
