Body Cam Shows The Events That Led Up To A Mans Death While In Custody

Bodycam footage released by the Orange County DA's office shows the events that led up to the death of Reenal Prasad while in custody.

Santa Ana Police received a call about a man who appeared to be under the influence of drugs approaching people and acting strangely.

When officers arrived, they detained Prasad and placed him in the back of a cruiser.

A few moments later Prasad began screaming and violently rocking back and forth. Both officers tried to calm Prasad to no avail.

When they arrived at the detention facility, correctional officers wheeled over a restraint chair and began the process of strapping him in. Prasad forcefully resisted 8 officers as they strapped down his legs, arms, waist, and shoulders.

A registered nurse was standing behind the chair told Prasad to settle down so he could help him and then asked if he could hear him. Prased did not answer.

He was rolled to a nearby shaded area and examined by three members of the medical staff. The nurse observed Prasad and appeared to be unconscious and unresponsive. A nurse directed correctional officers to remove Prasad from the restraint chair. He was then unstrapped and placed on the floor. A nurse began performing CPR until paramedics arrived.

When paramedics arrived, they determined that Prasad was in cardiac arrest with no pulse and no respirations and had a head injury. They intubated Prasad and began supplying him oxygen using an air-bag-valve mask. They administered two doses of Epinephrine to restart Prasad's heart.

Prasad was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and placed pm hypothermia protocol. CT scans of Prasad's head and spine found no trauma. On June 3, 2018, a physician at OCGMC examined Prasad and observed he was comatose, sedated, mechanically ventilated, and unresponsive to stimuli. An Electroencephalogram (EEG) showed minimal brain activity on June 5, 2018. Prasad never regained consciousness and his health continued to deteriorate. On June 13, 2018, two physicians conducted two different brain studies and confirmed brain death. In their opinion, Prasad died of cardio pulmonary arrest due to anoxic brain injury due to acute drug intoxication.
