A 56-year-old woman from Bristol, Florida has died at a Blountstown hospital shortly after being arrested by police.
Barbara Dawson was taken to Liberty Calhoun Hospital for treatment for problems. She was released Monday because doctors said she was stable. Dawson, however, did not want to leave and asked for additional care.
She was then arrested for disorderly conduct and trespassing and officers escorted her out of the hospital. The woman eventually collapsed while walking to the police car. The Tallahassee NAACP is investigating.
