Minn. Cop Died of Heart Attack After Foot Pursuit
February 19, 2013
A St. Paul (Minn.) Police officer died from complications of a heart attack he suffered during a foot pursuit earlier this month, reports the Pioneer Press.
Officer Josh Lynaugh, 30, died Saturday, about two weeks after the foot chase. On Feb. 8, the officers observed a subject acting suspiciously. When they turned their squad car, the teenager fled. Officer Lynaugh caught him and issued a citation for violating curfew and for running off.
Lynaugh became ill after the chase and was taken to Regions Hospital, where he was treated for a heart attack.

There should be more rigid physical requirements to be a cop. This is embarrassing. He was obese and should not have been employed for this job. Disgusting!
