Broward releases deputy's bodycam video shot before Kevon Todd's death

At approximately 9:11 a.m. on Thursday, April 9, 2020, Broward Sheriff’s Office Airport district deputies responded to 200 Terminal Drive, Terminal #3 (Jet Blue) at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport to a disturbance involving a male subject who was yelling at Jet Blue staff members. The subject, later identified as Kevon Todd, was acting irrational and after speaking with deputies, began running toward a security check point area and knocking over the stanchion poles before falling. Deputies attempted to detain him, and he began to resist their efforts.

After a physical struggle, deputies were able to detain Todd and then brought him to the front of the terminal. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue was notified and responded to assist. As fire rescue personnel were tending to Todd, he became unresponsive. Rescue personnel began life-saving measures, which continued at Broward Health Medical Center. At approximately 10 a.m., when paramedics arrived at the hospital, Todd was still alive. He was subsequently pronounced dead at the hospital at 11:25 a.m.

Some of the deputies sustained minor injuries and were medically cleared. The Broward Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death an overdose, and determined the manner to be accidental. The medical examiner's report listed acute eutylone intoxication as the official cause of death. Eutylone is a stimulant that officials consider a novel designer drug.
