  • Man Dies In B.C. After Being Held In Police Cells, Police Watchdog Called In

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — The Mounties say they have notified British Columbia's police watchdog after the death of a man who was being held in an RCMP cell in Kamloops.


Police say the man was found unresponsive shortly before 6 a.m. today.


The RCMP say the man was arrested under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act after a business in the city filed a complaint at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday.


Police say the man had been asked not to be at the business and he appeared intoxicated.


The RCMP say officers found the man in a nearby parking lot and he was being held until he was able to care for himself.


The Independent Investigations Office examines all deaths or serious injuries involving police to determine whether any offences were committed.
