A 42-year-old Louisiana man, Adam Stogner, has died after being pulled over by Deputy Chris Sturdivant. A dash cam video shows the deputy with his arms around the Stogner’s neck after he was suspect of trying to swallow drugs. Stogner died along Interstate 12. Preliminary results from the coroner show that Stogner died from “severe coronary artery disease, an enlarged heart, and a fracture of the hyoid bone in his neck.”

WAFB has more details here.

This video is from MSNBC’s Morning Joe, broadcast July 13, 2009.
