Southern Denton County Local News The Texas Rangers launched an investigation Wednesday into a Denton Police Department in-custody death. About 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a reported disturbance at a hotel in the 600 block of South I-35E, where the caller said they heard glass breaking in a hotel room and a male subject seemed 'out of it,' according to a Denton PD news release. Officers had just made contact with the same subject about 20 minutes earlier because he called 911 to report someone trying to get into his hotel room, but when officers arrived to that initial call, he said he was fine and didn't need assistance, so the officers left.
