A man who died in police custody over the weekend was hogtied when he resisted arrest, authorities said. The order by Sgt. Tony Ennis to hogtie James Gary Nelson, 35, came after four officers put wrist and leg restraints on the suspect, who continued to kick and resist, Det. Mary DeGeare said. The practice has been banned in the Bakersfield Police Department since 1995. Authorities say they believe the man was high on methamphetamine when restrained and then stopped breathing.
