Cleveland Heights Officer dies in foot chase
A Cleveland Heights officer died after collapsing while chasing down a suspect on March 13, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Officer Thomas Patton II, 30, was in pursuit of 21-year-old Malcolm Bryant, who allegedly harassed two female employees at Marc's discount store around 8:15 p.m. and spit in the face of an off-duty officer working security.
Preliminary findings show his cause of death was heart related. Patton had no history of heart trouble and was thought to be in excellent health, according to the report.
The suspect Bryant was taken into custody and will be charged today with assault of a police officer for spitting, obstructing justice, and fleeing.
Prosecutors will decide whether to charge him with Patton's death.
Visitation for Officer Patton will be held Tuesday, March 16 and Wednesday, March 17 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday at St. Colman Church, where Patton was an altar boy.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
