Jail accused of ignoring "medically-vulnerable" inmate’s pleas before he died

The above video includes footage that may be disturbing to watch.

The family of an Arkansas man is suing the jail he died in, claiming he was denied adequate medical care. Michael Sabbie died in 2015, just days after he was locked up at the bi-state justice center. He had been arrested over a verbal dispute with his wife. Sabbie’s attorney gave CBS News videos from inside the jail that appear to show the state he was in about 12 hours before he was found dead. CBS News hasn’t been able to independently confirm the videos.

Sabbie’s family says the jail knew he had serious medical conditions and failed to get him proper help when he was clearly struggling, reports CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca. Surveillance video given to CBS News from Sabbie’s attorney appears to show a security guard at the justice center throw Sabbie to the ground.

According to the lawsuit, Sabbie wasn’t feeling well and had stopped to lean against the wall before attempting to enter the booking area to make a phone call.

A second video, taken by a jail employee, purportedly shows what happens after Sabbie is on the floor. He’s held down by six guards and pepper-sprayed, brought to a jail nurse for less than a minute, rinsed off and returned to his cell.

During the nine-and-a-half minute video, Sabbie says he can’t breathe at least 19 times and asks for water.

The next morning, jail guards found the 35-year-old dead on his jail cell floor.

“He is a medically-vulnerable person. So he reported at intake that he had hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and asthma,” said Erik Heipt, who is representing Sabbie’s family in the lawsuit against the jail filed earlier this week.

The suit claims jail staff didn’t give Sabbie his medications, ignored his labored breathing and used excessive force.

LaSalle Corrections runs this privately-owned jail and 17 other facilities across four states.

They said they do not make comments on pending litigation, but told a local news station last October that they comply with Texas Jail Commission standards.

Heipt says the family wants justice and answers for the father of four.

“They want to expose what happened in the hopes that this sort of thing doesn’t happen to anyone else,” Heipt said.

According to jail protocol, somebody was supposed to check on Sabbie every 30 minutes overnight. The suit claims that a guard said she did and then later admitted to lying.

Limited parking, lots of security, for second test event at Mosaic

With Our Lady Peace, Johnny Reid and Bryan Adams getting ready to play Mosaic Stadium for the second test event, attendees to the concert on Saturday are being asked to take alternative modes of transportation to the stadium.

The whole idea for the plan is for people to get to and from the stadium and not use their vehicles, Mayor Michael Fougere said. Take public transit and taxis to get there. We tested this with the Rams versus Huskies game and it worked very well. The public was very happy with how it was used and they used more transit than ever before. With no public parking at Evraz Place for the concert, and Elphinstone Street closed between Dewdney Avenue and Saskatchewan Drive from 2 p.m. to midnight, Fougere is confident that residents will follow the plan to ensure everyone has a great experience.

If you take public transit, take the shuttle, or take a taxi, you will find that with the closing of Elphinstone, people can walk here easily and easier than if they were trying to find a place to park. Concert attendees can ride transit for free to the stadium if they show their event ticket to the driver. In addition, shuttles will run from 3:45-7 p.m. from Southland Mall, Northgate Mall, Victoria Square Mall, Normanview Crossing, the Delta Hotel and Victoria Park. A bike valet service is being provided at the southwest corner of Confederation Park.

There will also be plenty of security at the event, with 150 security officers patrolling the stadium for the concert, 50 more than the first test event.

Security has to be vigilant from the time people come in the front gate, to the intelligence gathering on an ongoing basis, so we are ready for any event, said Rod Buckingham, game day security commander. We introduced metal detectors last year. We increased that this year and we will continue to monitor that. It does result in getting quite a few items, some prohibited and some illegal. Prohibited items for the concert include outside alcohol, coolers, opened bottles or containers, air horns or sirens, laser pointers, rods, dowels and hockey sticks, as well as UAVs, umbrellas, selfie sticks and any unauthorized advertising.

You have to draw a line somewhere, said Buckingham. It is more about the activity of the people than the item. There are certain standards across arenas and stadiums that we try to stay consistent with. For the upcoming Riders season, 200 cameras will be set up in the new stadium. In addition, a security officer will wear a visiting team s jersey to ensure fans are treated well during games.

People should all have fun. It is an entertainment event, Buckingham said. If someone is ruining your good time, we just need to be prepared to deal with that. Generally speaking, the fans are pretty good here.

For those attending, gates open at 4 p.m. and Our Lady Peace will begin their show at 6 p.m., followed by Johnny Reid at 7:30 p.m. and Bryan Adams at 9 p.m. The concert will end at 11 p.m.

Fans were quick to praise Aly for speaking out. One said: Ask him where he keeps his Olympic Gold Medals. Another added: He probably DID see your muscles and felt threatened by them, so he had to put you down to make himself feel better.

A third added: He represents the TSA, you represent the USA now who s better?
