Antonio May was arrested on trespassing charges. After being arrested, May was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and then to the Fulton County Jail for booking. May was in a holding cell when a deputy realized he was naked and masturbating. When he failed to comply with officers' demands to stop, six deputies entered the cell and attempted to restrain him. May was shocked by two Tasers and hit with pepper spray, police said. After May was handcuffed and taken to a shower, deputies sprayed him with a hose to get the pepper spray out of his eyes. He died a short time later. Media reports don't state categorically whether he was booked, so this incident may be outside of FatalEncounters dataset, which does not include individuals after they've been booked into the jail or prison system.
