TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the death of a man who died while in custody of the Creek County Sheriff's Office.

The OSBI said Matthew Kelley, 27, died Sunday, July 10, 2011 after deputies responded to a call in the 6300 block of South 42nd West Avenue in Tulsa.

Investigators say deputies were attempting to arrest Kelley for violating a protection order when Kelley ran inside his house and refused to comply.

Creek County Sheriff's deputies said they tased Kelley at least twice and used OC Spray on him during a struggle to handcuff him.  The OSBI says Kelley continued to fight with deputies as he was being carried into the back of a patrol car.

Deputies found blood on Kelley and transported him to a hospital where he was found dead in the back seat of the patrol car.

Read news release from Creek County Sheriff's Office.

The state Medical Examiner's Office has possession of Kelley's body and will determine the cause and manner of death.
