Police involved death ruled an accident

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._The Oklahoma Medical Examiners office says the death of 32-year-old Anthony Binder was an accident.

According to the autopsy report, Binder's cause of death was "acute cocaine toxicity" complicated by cardiovascular disease and obesity. It also said the type of death was violent, unusual or unnatural. There was also evidence of blunt force trauma.

Police were called to Binder's house by his family who thought he was high on drugs. When officers arrived two men were holding binder down. One of the officers took over pinning binder on the ground until backup arrived, and that's when they realized he was not breathing.

The officers gave him CPR but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
