Waiting Game: Still no decision in the Tanisha Anderson death-in-custody case

Waiting Game: Still no decision in the Tanisha Anderson death-in-custody case

Cleveland's Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath has yet to decide whether or not Cleveland police officers Scott Aldridge and Bryan Myers violated at least a half dozen department policies, including use of force, when they arrested Tanisha Anderson last year.

Investigators accuse Officers Aldridge and Myers of 'failing to notify EMS in a timely fashion' when it was apparent Ms. Anderson was in need of medical care.

Anderson, 37, died on Nov. 12, 2014. She had been began acting out due to mental health and other medical issues so her family called 911 for help. According to family members, the way she was subdued by officers is what killed her.

Anderson's death was ruled a homicide on January 2, 2015.

Officer Aldridge, a veteran of 7 years, and Bryan Myers, a rookie who has been on the job less than a year, have both been on restricted duty since the incident.

McGrath has up to 90 days to make a decision on whether disciplinary action is warranted but he is not expected to take that long.
