Criminal charges dropped against man left with paralysis in US police custody

A man who was left partially paralyzed while in police custody has had all criminal charges against him dropped.

Diaz continued to drive for three and a half minutes before stopping to check on Cox, who at this point was slumped at the back of the van and was crying out for help.

Police officers eventually dragged Cox out of the van and put him into a wheelchair that he repeatedly slipped from.

Officers then dragged Cox out of the wheelchair and pulled him across the floor to a cell where they put him up against a bed.

According to the lawsuit, Cox has been left with severe injuries and damages including a cervical spine fracture, permanent paralysis below his neck, permanent muscle atrophy and shortened life expectancy.
