Update: Man who Died in Police Custody had Run-in with Police Last Year

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man who died following an incident in a motel had been in trouble with police for a similar incident in the past year.

Overnight at the Red Roof Inn on Youngerman Circle, police responded to a disoriented man complaining in the parking lot. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has identified him as Curtis James Moss.

Police said the 28-year-old retreated to his room with his girlfriend, but he was unstable and they took him into custody.

When they got Moss out of the room, police said, he struggled with them.

Chief John Hartley said officers held Moss to the ground and tried to use a total restraint appendage or TAR on him but were only able to get it around his legs.

Hartley said no Tasers or police baton were used in the incident.  Police say Moss' girlfriend and a hotel security guard have signed sworn statements stating the Tasers and baton were not used.
