The death of a 40-year-old black man following a police arrest is under investigation in Texas after body camera video of the encounter became public.
They were the same words George Floyd would later say before his death in Minneapolis on May 25.
Ambler was wanted over a traffic violation, but he didn’t stop, according to a custodial death report from Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office.
Deputies followed him into Austin, where he crashed.
The report said police tased Ambler after he didn’t immediately comply with what deputies were asking. Once in custody, Ambler became unresponsive. Resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful, and Ambler later died at the hospital.
Travis County District Attorney Margaret Moore said the case will be heard by a grand jury.
