Man, 30, dies in CdA police custody

A 30-year-old man who lost consciousness while in Coeur d’Alene police custody died early Thursday at Kootenai Medical Center.

Nicholas Andrew Clason was pronounced dead at the hospital , where he was admitted late Sunday for a possible drug overdose.

Police first contacted him about 10:40 p.m. Sunday at the Fourth Street on-ramp of westbound Interstate 90 after officers received reports of a suicidal man. Police reports say Clason was diabetic.
