Maryland state prosecutors will investigate the death of a motorist arrested by police officers and held in a cell before he did not respond, authorities said Saturday.

Under a state law passed last year, the Attorney General's Office's Independent Investigations Division will investigate the death of the man, who was not identified by the office or Maryland State Police.

Officers conducting a traffic stop Friday night arrested the driver and charged him with possession of a controlled substance, according to news releases. The driver was conscious and responding to questions at the time of his arrest, according to authorities.

He was taken to the Queen Anne County State Police Headquarters and placed in a cell. About two hours after arriving at the barracks, the driver began "showing signs of distress and became unresponsive," according to the releases. Patrolmen intervened and called emergency medical services, who took him to a hospital where he died shortly before midnight, according to state police.

There is some camera footage, according to officials, that the Independent Investigations Division is usually able to release within 14 days of the event.
