From My Fox DC:
The Department of Justice is now investigating the death of a Maryland man with Down syndrome who died while in police custody.
The incident happened in Frederick back in January.
Investigators want to know if 26-year-old Robert Ethan Saylor's civil rights were violated.
Three off-duty Frederick County Sheriff's Deputies forcibly removed Saylor from a movie theater when he snuck back in without paying.
Saylor died of asphyxiation after being handcuffed.
