Excited Delirium Syndrome

A controversial issue is sometimes referred to in these cases and that is known as ‘Excited Delirium Syndrome’. This is when someone shows symptoms of agitation, anxiety, disorientation, hallucinations and often violent, bizarre behaviour. This has often been linked to deaths in custody.
