Patrolman Irving Baker succumbed to injuries sustained one week earlier when he was assaulted while attempting to arrest an intoxicated subject. As he escorted the man to jail, the man picked him up and slammed him against a lamppost.

After several hours Patrolman Baker began to cough up blood. He was treated and released from the hospital, but he continued to feel bad. When he returned to the hospital it was discovered that he had a broken rib that punctured his lung. An infection set in, causing his death.

Patrolman Baker had served with the agency for 8 years. He was survived by his wife and two sons.
