An autopsy and a special investigation indicates four Newton County deputies acted properly in restraining a man last month, although the man died in custody. Highway patrol sergeant Miles Parks says deputies made the man drop a knife and a pair of pliers he was holding. But Charles “Frankie” McKeehan fought and bit the deputies when they tried to check him for weapons. The autopsy showed the man had a high level of methamphetamine in his blood, and probably died of a heart attack brought on by meth and heat exposure.
