Jasper Police Department Jail Detainee Dies in Cell - Federal Lawsuit Filed

Beaumont, Texas – 3/30/2020 — On January 28, 2019, Mitchell Qualls was arrested by the Jasper Police Department for Public Intoxication at a local hospital.  He was taken to the Jasper Police Department jail / holding facility and booked in shortly after 10:00 p.m.  Police officers did not change Mitchell into appropriate jail clothing but instead left him in his street clothes. He was then locked up in the “detox” cell so that he could “sober up.”
