CADILLAC, MI – A man is dead after apparently taking a lethal dose of illegal narcotics while he was being arrest in Cadillac over the weekend, 9&10 News reports.
The incident began when Cadillac Police officers pulled over a vehicle that wasn’t using headlights early Saturday on South Mitchel Street, the report said. There were two men in the vehicle and the driver admitted to drinking alcohol. Rather than step out of the vehicle for a breath test, he sped away, police said.
Officers returned to their patrol car and gave chase for a short distance.

Illegal drugs, a handgun and a large amount of cash were discovered in the vehicle. The passenger has not been found.
The driver was apprehended, arrested and taken to Munson Hospital in Cadillac where he later died. Officers believe the man may have taken a lethal dose of illegal drugs during the arrest.
The case remains under investigation.
