The pretrial hearing of a Falmouth man, who was involved in a fistfight with another man who later died while in Falmouth police custody has been rescheduled for January 3.

Jarrod Scott-Reynolds, 33, was due in Falmouth District Court today for a pretrial hearing. He is facing three misdemeanor charges of assault and battery, disturbing the peace, and affray (fighting) after police broke up a fight between himself and Bruce Enos, 30, of Locustfield Road. Mr. Enos died in police custody after the two men were brought to the police station.

Falmouth criminal defense attorney Drew J. Segadelli is representing Mr. Scott-Reynolds. He said Falmouth police wanted more time to get evidence to him.

“They are not sharing information yet and need to get to me any surveillance or other evidence before the next court date,” the attorney said. “To use the police words, ‘The case is still under investigation’ and they are keeping their cards close to their chest,” he said. Police might be waiting for Mr. Enos’s cause of death from the state medical examiner’s office, he added.

Mr. Scott-Reynolds was released at his arraignment on $5,000 bail.

A Falmouth police officer on patrol observed an altercation between Mr. Enos and Mr. Scott-Reynolds in front of Añejo Mexican Bistro on Main Street just after midnight on November 5.

One witness told police he had seen the two men fighting. A second witness, who told police he was a friend of Mr. Enos, said there had been two fights that night between the men.

Mr. Enos and Mr. Scott-Reynolds were transported for booking to Falmouth police headquarters. Once there, Mr. Enos collapsed, according to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Enos was transported to Falmouth Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Falmouth police are referring all questions on the incident to the DA’s office, which in turn is not answering questions, saying the matter is still under investigation.
