An independent panel created to review last year's in-custody death of Tyrone West determined that Baltimore police officers did not use excessive force but made tactical errors that "potentially aggravated the situation" and did not follow basic policies. West, 44, died on July 18, 2013, after police and witnesses said he fought with officers after being pulled over while driving through Northeast Baltimore. West's family has maintained that, based on accounts from witnesses, he was beaten to death by the officers, though an autopsy determined he died because of a heart condition exacerbated by the struggle with police and the summer heat.

"He was saying, 'You got me, you got me, stop hitting me,'" Corinthea Servance told detectives. "Natural instinct, you're going to ward them off. … I was screaming at him, just lay down. Whatever they're telling you to do, take the pain.

Baltimore police were legally justified in using their fists, batons and pepper spray to subdue Tyrone West before he died while resisting arrest this summer, State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein said Thursday. The officers involved in the case used "objectively reasonable force" and will not face charges, Bernstein said. The announcement concludes the criminal investigation in a case that began with a traffic stop and became the focus of increasing public pressure amid angry protests by West's family.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday that he plans to form a commission of experts outside the city department to review the death of Tyrone West, a move denounced by the head of the city's police union as "a way to placate the public" while undermining confidence in his officers' investigations. Batts spoke at a City Council hearing called weeks ago to probe delays in the release of autopsy findings in the July death of West, a 44-year-old man who police say died after fighting officers during a traffic stop in Northeast Baltimore.

Baltimore prosecutors on Tuesday said a heart condition and dehydration were factors in the death of a man being restrained by police during a July traffic stop. But the state medical examiner could not determine the degree to which the officers' actions - or Tyrone West's ailments - contributed to his death. The examiner couldn't conclude whether the death resulted from a homicide, accident or other means. The release of the findings came a day before a City Council hearing called to probe delays in the case.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Friday called on State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein to release as "expeditiously as possible" the autopsy report of a man who died in police custody months ago. "I write urging you to work expeditiously to provide the public with a prompt and transparent determination of the events that occurred surrounding this incident," the mayor wrote in a letter to Bernstein. Tyrone West, 44, died during an altercation with police after he was pulled over on July 18. His family has been protesting frequently - often outside City Hall - demanding answers.

The state medical examiner's office says the autopsy report for Tyrone West, who died in police custody during a traffic stop in July, has been completed after more than four months of investigation.  But results can't be shared as the criminal investigation continues, authorities said Monday. West, 44, died during an altercation with police after he was pulled over on July 18. His family has been protesting weekly - sometimes daily - demanding insight into how he died, and recently city councilmembers and a candidate for lieutenant governor joined their call for answers.  Mark Cheshire, a spokesman for the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office, said prosecutors had not yet received the report but that the investigation is not finished and authorities are not ready to reveal West's cause of death.

Baltimore police released dispatch recordings Monday of officers calling for help at a traffic stop in Northeast Baltimore last week that ended with the death of the man they had pulled over. The tape begins with an unidentified male officer calling Thursday night from the 1300 block of Kitmore Road, making a routine request for a female officer to come and search a woman. The woman had been pulled over in a vehicle with 44-year-old Tyrone West. A female officer responds that she is on her way. Suddenly, the male officer calls for backup.
