"My brother Manuel told me, 'Take me home because the police are going to kill me,'" his sister Ruth said at a press conference.

Marco De La Cruz Jr. said it took between five to six hours before his brother was admitted.

Manuel De La Cruz wouldn't take off his clothes to put on a hospital gown, and police became involved, KHOU-TV reports.

According to the family's lawsuit, five officers and a hospital security guard piled on top of him, and he was choked and tased. He didn't move after the incident.

"Taking that boy's pants off became worth using the force of the state against him until he was dead," family attorney Joe House said.

The lawsuit was filed against the city of Port Arthur, the Port Arthur Police Department and the hospital. They declined to provide comment to KHOU-TV.
