The Phoenix police officers involved in the arrest of an out-of-control passenger at Sky Harbor airport who later died in custody did not break any laws and will not be prosecuted, Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Thursday.

Thomas said his office reviewed a Phoenix police report into the death of Carol Gotbaum, as well as photographs and a photographic re-enactment of the death and autopsy reports by the County Medical Examiner's Office. The case was looked at by the County Attorney's in-custody review committee, consisting of veteran prosecutors.

Gotbaum, 45, died in police custody on Sept. 28 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after she was shackled and left alone in a holding cell.
