KINGSTON, Okla. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a man who collapsed while fighting with law officers in southern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says the man died Thursday after fighting with Kingston police officers and a county sheriff's deputy. The man's name hasn't been released.

The OSBI says the law officers and medical personnel were called to a car wash where a man was in a ditch and appeared to be suffering a heart attack. The man was found unresponsive, but regained consciousness and began fighting with officers before he again fell unresponsive and stopped breathing.

He was taken to a Madill hospital where he was pronounced dead.
