DOJ examining disabled Md. man's in custody death
Saturday - 7/20/2013, 2:00pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the death of a man with Down syndrome who died in police custody while being removed from a Frederick movie theater.
The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/15ULSvf) reports Frederick Sheriff Charles A. Jenkins said in an interview Friday that Justice Department officials are investigating the Jan. 12 death of Robert Ethan Saylor. Jenkins told the paper he learned weeks ago by letter of the investigation into whether Saylor's civil rights were violated. Jenkins says he expects that once investigators review the facts they will see that three off-duty Frederick County deputies involved in the incident acted appropriately.
The 26-year-old Saylor watched "Zero Dark Thirty" at the theater with an aide. He then slipped back into the theater without paying and refused to leave.
