The city of Cleveland has suspended a police officer for not calling EMS quickly enough to respond to a woman who died after a mental health crisis in 2014.
Public safety director Michael McGrath suspended Officer Scott Aldridge for 10 days without pay, and gave a written warning to Officer Bryan Myers.
Both officers responded to 9-1-1 calls from the family of 37-year-old Tanisha Anderson. She became unresponsive as officers tried to get her into a patrol car to take her to a hospital. A family lawsuit, now settled, accuses police of throwing her to the ground.
