The 23-year-old was stopped by police on his way home after someone reported a “sketchy” person in the area. McClain was placed in a chokehold and paramedics injected him with 500 milligrams of ketamine before he suffered cardiac arrest and was later declared brain dead. The first responders involved will each be charged with one count of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. BNC’s chief legal correspondent Dr. Laura McNeal joins “BNC Live” with Tashanea Whitlow to discuss the details in the case.
