A video has surfaced of an inmate who died at a privately run Texarkana jail more than a year ago. It shows 35- year-old Michael Sabbie, who was pepper sprayed and restrained, repeatedly telling corrections officers that he could not breathe. He died a short time later.

The video was posted Wednesday by the Huffington Post. Sabrina McCormick of Texarkana station KTXK spoke with an attorney representing Sabbie's family and other inmates who have died behind bars. You can hear the report above.
