GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- The Clay County Sheriff's Office has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in the death of a Clay County jail inmate last March.

Daniel Joseph Linsinbigler Jr., 19, was being held on a misdemeanor charge after he was seen running around naked at the Stay Suites yelling Bible scriptures and telling hotel guests he was God and he could save everybody.

He died March 12 while in police custody after he was restrained for violent behavior.

The medical examiner's report says he died of asphyxia, ruling the death a homicide.

But the State Attorney's Office determined there was no criminal wrongdoing or intent to do bodily harm and ruled it an accidental death.

Gunny48- That sounds much more reasonable than chocking and killing the kid. He was obviously whacked out on something... but throw a "big boy" Po-lice in there with a major attitude and a small "tool" and someone who needs help instead ends up dead. No worries though police, Angela "More Dumb than Corrupt or Vice Versa" Corey is there to save YOUR day. This is BS and someone should be charged, just like any CITIZEN WOULD if they did the same THING!

If I put someone who is violent in a choke hold, and they pass out and die what would the charges be against me? How many police officers were there ,and why did they have to kill someone then it gets whitewashed? Why is the officer that choked the man to death name not revealed so we know who the criminal is to avoid the sheriff's office in the future?

Why was he acting like that? Sounds like he needed hospital care/detox.
