CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Attorney General Peter Neronha's Office, as well as both Cranston and Rhode Island State Police, are investigating the death of a man who had been placed in restraints prior to being transported to the hospital. A spokesperson for the attorney general's office said Cranston police responded to a hotel for an individual in need of medical assistance last Thursday morning. Police officers called for a rescue after the man indicated he needed help. 'At some point during the interaction, police assisted fire personnel by restraining the individual,' said Brian Hodge, a spokesperson for Neronha's office.
