Former American football player dies at police station

Former American football player Glenn Foster Jr. died at the police station. Reported by CBS.

Foster was detained in Alabama on Saturday, December 4, on charges of risky behavior, resisting arrest and trying to escape police. Later, the footballer was accused of assault and robbery. The athlete died on December 6, but this became known only two days later.

According to Foster's mother, he died after the police refused to provide him with medical assistance. “I told them that my son did not eat or drink, and his organs might fail, but that didn’t bother them,” she explained to the Daily Beast.

Foster played for the New Orleans Saints in the National Football League from 2013-2014. In 2015, he left the team.
