The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is stepping in to investigate an incident in Clarke County where a man died after an altercation with a police officer.
Clarke Co. coroner Greg Fairchild confirms 39-year-old Jonathan Sanders died Wednesday night. Sanders’ attorney, Stewart Parish, said that Sanders was exercising his horses in Stonewall when Officer Kevin Herrington pulled him off and choked Sanders with a flashlight. Right now, Stonewall police say they can’t release much information, but Chief Michael Street says an incident did happen between 10:30 and 11 p.m. when an officer encountered an individual.
