Locals set fire to the town hall overnight in protest. Footage from the scene showed his father trying to resuscitate Arellano at the scene.
While government officials did not explain why Arellano was stopped, residents of a town in the gulf coast state of Veracruz overturned a police car and set it on fire. Clashes reportedly broke out between residents and police officers, while residents also reportedly smashed the windows of the town hall.
The four police officers involved in the incident are under investigation and "will not go unpunished", the ministry said in a statement.
