Sheriff releases video of jail incident that led to Natasha McKenna's death | US news | The Guardian: McKenna is seen naked and struggling with a team of deputies in biohazard suits who are trying to transfer McKenna to another jail. The sheriff’s office deployed an Emergency Response Team to conduct the transfer because McKenna had previously attacked deputies.

Fairfax County commonwealth’s attorney Ray Morrogh said Tuesday he will not bring criminal charges against the deputies, calling the death a “tragic accident”.

In a 51-page report, Morrogh concluded that deputies acted appropriately in their efforts to restrain McKenna during a cell transfer in February. He had been evaluating whether to bring charges for the past two months.

McKenna, who was African American, lost consciousness at the conclusion of the 3 February incident, and was declared brain dead four days later.

A team of five deputies used a hood called a “spit sock” and eventually fired four Taser shots at McKenna during a 20-minute struggle to get her restrained for a transfer to the Alexandria jail, about nine miles south of Arlington.
