SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — A Tennessee man died after a witness says police in northern Mississippi police “hogtied” him on a stretcher.

Multiple news outlets report that 30-year-old Memphis chemical engineer Troy Goode died in a hospital Saturday night, two hours after being detained by the Southaven Police Department.

Southaven Police Chief Tom Long says authorities were called to a parking lot after a Widespread Panic concert and were told Goode was possibly suffering an LSD overdose. Emergency personnel detained Goode and took him to a hospital.

David McLaughlin, a Memphis attorney, says he witnessed the incident and posted a video of the arrest on YouTube, saying it shows Goode being restrained, face-down on a stretcher with his legs pulled back and bound.

Goode’s body will be sent to Jackson for an autopsy and toxicology report to determine a cause of death.
