WATERVILLE — A witness who videotaped the arrest of a man who died in police custody early Tuesday morning praised sheriff’s deputies for the calm and professional way they handled the tense situation.

“They didn’t rough him up,” said Daniel Augustson, who lives near Pioneer Park. “It was not an abusive take down. Everybody tried to keep him calm. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department did an extremely good job.”
