Family of Las Vegas man who died in police custody suing city, Metro, officers and sheriff.
Byron Williams was stopped by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers in September 2019 for riding his bicycle without a safety light. He ran, and police chased him. He was eventually caught, ordered to lay on the ground and handcuffed.
That’s when an officer put a knee to Williams’ back.
He can be heard saying “I can’t breathe” 24 times in video from a police body camera, according to civil rights attorney Ben Crump who, along with Antonio Romanucci, is representing Williams’ family.
