Bobby Ray Steele (New Miami, OH: 2007) was a 40 year old man with developmental and psychiatric disabilities. One day, he got into an argument with his father over cat food. Steele became agitated so his father called 911 to get his son to calm down. Steele did calm down, so his father hung up on 911 without saying anything. The police arrived and, although Steele was no longer agitated, began grapping and arresting him. Steele, now scared, tried to retreat into his home. The officers began slamming him to the ground and four officers piled on top of him and pepper sprayed him. Steele died on the scene.
