Iowa DCI agents are investigating the death of a Creston man after he had a run-in with local police. DCI Assistant Director Kevin Winker says Ronald Adkisson, 59, was found lying on a sidewalk Monday evening. Adkisson was pronounced dead outside the Union County Law Enforcement Center. "Earlier in the evening, Mr. Adkisson had been involved in a disturbance at the Fairway Store in Creston," Winker said.
Adkisson was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct. "The officers had utilized some force to take him into custody, which included the use of a Taser," Winker said. "He was booked and cited and later released, and shortly after being released is when he was discovered deceased outside the law center."
Winker says the DCI will be questioning the officers involved in the arrest of Adkisson and studying autopsy results. "We’re going to be looking, obviously, at the use of the Taser and any force…and any other circumstances that could’ve led to and caused his death," Winker said. The State Medical Examiner is scheduled to perform an autopsy Wednesday morning.
