By M. Alex Johnson, Staff Writer, NBC News The parents of a man with Down syndrome on Thursday filed suit against three Maryland sheriff's deputies for causing his "violent, terrifying, and painful death" as they tried to remove him from a movie theater early this year. Robert Ethan Saylor, 26, of New Market, Md., asphyxiated on Jan. 12 after the three Frederick County deputies, who were moonlighting as mall security officers, dragged him out of the theater in handcuffs and restraints. The deputies had been called in because Saylor went back into the Westview Regal Cinema in Frederick, northwest of Baltimore, without a ticket to watch the Osama bin Laden raid movie "Zero Dark Thirty" for a second time. Saylor's full-time aide told investigators that she warned the deputies that the 294-pound Saylor, who used a wheelchair, would "freak out" if they touched him. full story
