Man Pepper Sprayed To Death While In Police Custody

This happened more than a year ago, and to this day, no one has gone to jail or even been reprimanded. Nick Christie, a 62-year-old Ohio man visiting Florida, was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct. While in custody, Christie was gagged, stripped naked and tied to a chair. A lawsuit against the Lee County Sheriff’s Office alleged Christie was pepper sprayed 10 times over 48 hours, leading to his death. WARNING: Disturbing image.
