Douglas County man died of excited delirium during struggle with deputies

The Associated Press

WATERVILLE, Douglas County — The cause of death for a Waterville man who died in a struggle in July with Douglas County deputies has been determined as excited delirium.

County prosecutor and coroner Steve Clem says the determination was made last week by a contract forensic pathologist, Dr. Gina Fino.
Jason Nalls fought with deputies who had responded to a reported shooting. He jumped in patrol car and dragged a deputy about two blocks before he was handcuffed. Then deputies noticed he had stopped breathing.

The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/GRdNTT) Dr. Fino had also determined that excited delirium was the cause of death for a man who struggled with corrections officers in June in the Chelan County Regional Justice Center.

Excited delirium involves high heart and breathing rates during a period of stress.
