A 53-year-old man who died six days after being arrested by Henderson police has a broken collarbone, the Clark County Coroner’s Office said Wednesday.
Ronald Winborn died on March 27 at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center of clavicular fractures, hypertensive heart disease and liver disease. The coroner’s office ruled his death a homicide.
Henderson police went public for the first time on March 21 with Winborn’s arrest and subsequent death on Tuesday night, saying that Winborn had stabbed an officer and had been electrocuted.
A department arrest report released Wednesday said Winbourne was pointing a seven-inch butter knife at passing cars near O’Callaghan Park on Skyline Road when police were called just before 9 p.m. . According to the arrest report, he fled from officers and was electrocuted by a sergeant.
After Winborn staggered and fell, an officer placed his weight on Winborn’s left side and placed his left arm behind his back, while the sergeant held his right arm under his body, the agent wrote in the report. Another officer held Winborn’s right hand behind his back.
“I then put the handcuffs on Ronald, double-locked them and checked them for tightness,” the officer wrote.
Winborn was facing two counts of resisting law enforcement, one of assault with a deadly weapon and another of assault with first responders.
Henderson firefighters assessed Winborn at the scene and “medically released Ronald,” but Henderson Detention Center staff referred him to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Lima Campus, which also released him to return to prison. done.
In a Tuesday statement, police said Winborn’s health began to decline on March 27 and he was taken to Sunrise, where he later died.
Henderson police said the investigation into Winborn’s death was ongoing and declined to provide further details.
