Wayne H. Trudell

Deputy Wayne Herman Trudell, 39, died in a Bakersfield hospital from an apparent heart attack. Trudell was taken to the hospital after complaining of being short of breath and having pains in his chest.

He and another jail division deputy had just been involved in a scuffle with two prisoners who refused to enter their assigned cells.

Deputy Trudell had been transferred from patrol division about two months before after a short illness that was described by his doctor as a possible light heart attack.
