Robert Ethan Saylor, man with down syndrome, killed by police over a $11 Movie Ticket
Frederick News Post reported that last January 12, Robert Ethan Saylor, 26, diagnosed with a Down Syndrome, died of asphyxia while in police custody which has been ruled a homicide.

The arrest was caused by Saylor's refusal to either leave one of the theaters in the Regal Cinema Westview Stadium after the movie was over or pay for another movie ticket which cost $11. Due to this, sheriffs were called and he was handcuffed and forced to leave the theater.It was known though Cpl. Jennifer Bailey that Saylor cursed at the officers as they tried to get him out of the theater where he suffered some medical emergency, reported The Associated Press.

He was brought to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Sheriff's office lead investigator, Cpl. Gregg Warner, said that he wanted to have the full medical report from the medical examiner, "We want to make sure we have that before any more statements could be made. We have formally requested it, but there is a process they have to go through."

The officers who had Saylor in custody was not put on leave but was actually allowed to continue their duties as Saylor's cause of death was still uncertain.
