BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg is reporting an inmate death in the Clermont County Jail.

According to Rodenberg, 29-year-old Jason Vdovick of Milford, Oh became disruptive in his cell Saturday morning at around 7:45 a.m. The report says that a Jail Supervisor tried to calm him, and was unsuccessful. The Sheriff's Office says that use of force became necessary, although they don't say what type of force was required.

The use of force caused Vdovick to become unresponsive, and emergency medical personnel were called. They transported him to Mercy Hospital Clermont where he was pronounced dead at around 9 a.m.

An investigation of this incident is underway jointly between Sheriff's Office investigators, the Clermont Count Coroner's Office, and the Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI).

An autopsy will be conducted by the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

The Sheriff's Office says that, until the investigation and autopsy are completed, no more information will be released concerning this matter.

Vdovick was serving a 6 day sentence for DUI.
