Man dies after deputies arrest him for DWI

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities in South Carolina say a man died after deputies arrested him for suspicion of driving while impaired.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that 35-year-old Clarence Junior Young started having "medical complications" after he was pulled over and arrested Tuesday afternoon. The release gave no details on the medical issues. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

According to the release, Young initially refused to stop for deputies, who saw items being thrown from his car as they followed. When he did stop, deputies arrested Young for DWI and failure to stop for a blue light and siren. Officers found a handgun in the car they said he had illegally.

An autopsy will determine why he died.
