Posted: Updated:

ELKRIDGE, Md. (AP) - Howard County police say a Baltimore man who was being handcuffed after a traffic stop collapsed to the ground and died.

Police say it happened Saturday morning in Elkridge, after an officer pulled over a man driving a car with suspended tags on southbound Route 1 at the exit to Route 100 west.

The man, identified as 51-year-old Hakeem Muhammad, was arrested on charges of driving with suspended tags and providing false information about his identity.

Police say he complained he wasn't feeling well after being handcuffed and collapsed to the ground.

Despite efforts to revive him, he was later pronounced dead at Howard County General Hospital of a possible cardiac arrest.

Police are still trying to confirm the exact cause of death.
