A man dies at the hospital after fighting with several police officers who tried to arresting him for allegedly driving while under the influence.
It happened at the 800 block of Hidalgo street Sunday night as police tried to pull over 39 year-old Adan Olvera Jr. on suspicion of driving drunk. Police say the officer had to call for backup after Olvera got rowdy and resisted arrest an was able to get back into his car and drive off.
Police were able to pull over Olvera again and he then struggled with officers for a second time but collapsed during the incident. EMS took him to the nearest hospital where he later died. Three officers were treated for injuries sustained during the struggle and an autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death for Olvera.
