A Florida man who is suspected of swallowing a bag of marijuana died in police custody Friday. A taser was used on Andrew Grande after he resisted arrest. Grande then indicated that he was having trouble breathing and taken to Bay Medical Center. An autopsy determined that the preliminary cause of death was asphyxia due to obstruction of the airway by a foreign material.
