Yale professor died of drug overdose

Posted: Updated:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut medical examiner's office says a Yale University professor who died in police detention had overdosed on drugs.

The office said Monday that Samuel See died in November of acute methamphetamine and amphetamine intoxication with a recent heart attack. See's death has been ruled an accident.

See was an assistant professor of English and American studies at the Ivy League university in New Haven. He was detained by police responding to a report of domestic dispute. He was charged with violating a protective order, threatening and interfering with police.

Police say during his arrest he and officers fell and he was cut above his left eye.

Police Chief Dean Esserman has apologized for a three-day delay in releasing information about See's death.

    Lyft, the pink-mustached cars, is an app-based car-sharing service. It launches Friday in New York City as a sort of outer-borough Uber except the drivers are ordinary folks, not professionals. At the end of the ride, a donation is asked for but not required. Lyft car sharing is operating in 60 cities already. But New York City may be different. Meera Joshi, the chair of the Taxi and Limousine Commission, says Lyft's business model is illegal.
