Now, officials say that death has been ruled a homicide.
The Baltimore County Medical Examiner's Office ruled 26-year-old Robert Saylor's cause of death as Asphyxia.
Officials say Saylor was arrested at Westview Cinemas in January after he wouldn't leave when the movie was over. They say that's when an employee called for help. When the man wouldn't cooperate, officials handcuffed him.
They say that's when Saylor had a medical emergency, so they removed the handcuffs and called EMS.
"They made numerous attempts to get him to leave, he was cursing at them, at that point they psychically removed him, and he began having the medical emergency," says Cpl. Jennifer Bailey, of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office. "They immediately removed the handcuffs and administered first aid. It's a very sad case, and not something we see everyday."
The man was pronounced dead at Frederick Memorial Hospital. The three deputies involved in the case continue to work at the Sheriff's Office.
