LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas are continuing to
investigate the in-custody death of a 37-year-old U.S. Army veteran
who died at a hospital two days after struggling with police during
his arrest.

Clark County coroner's officials said Tuesday that a cause of
death for Glenn Young Ybanez is pending.

Officer Jose Hernandez says Las Vegas police are investigating
how Ybanez became unconscious during his arrest July 2.

Police say Ybanez had been sought on an out-of-state criminal
warrant when he ran from police during a vehicle stop a few blocks
west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Family members tell the Pacific Daily News on the Pacific Island
of Guam that Ybanez was a former Army sergeant who served in Iraq
before moving to Las Vegas in 2008.
