A man arrested Wednesday night in Stockton following a disturbance remains in the hospital Friday and is not expected to survive, according to the Stockton Police Department.
Police said a multi-agency critical investigation was initiated because the man was in custody when he became unresponsive.
Officers were dispatched shortly before 11 p.m. to the 5400 block of Covey Creek Circle on reports of a suspicious person approaching people’s front doors and screaming.
At the scene, officers witnessed a man only wearing underwear sitting on a vehicle. Police said the man was bleeding from his head, but how he suffered the injury remains unclear.
When officers approached him, he allegedly fell off the car, began rolling on the ground while screaming and started throwing rocks at the officers.

Life-saving measures were performed on him and he was taken to a hospital. A Stockton Police spokesperson stated on July 29 that the man was still in the hospital and not expected to survive.
