An inmate has died after a struggle with guards at the San Joaquin County jail, although the cause of his death remains under investigation.

Authorities say Denmon broke free and again fought with officers, but then lost he consciousness.

Denmon was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The incident remains under investigation.
