Don't know the ins and outs of the case, but injecting agitated patients with Ketamine isn't uncommon in the NHS. Theres a reasonable evidence base. 
 

The issue comes when patients continue to be pinned to the floor 'after' the Ketamine, which is a good way to stop them breathing...

If giving an agitated person a dose of ketamine and then restraining them, (I’m guessing it’s not just pinning them to the ground), may cause them to stop breathing and probably die, then I suspect there is reasonable evidence to suggest that maybe ketamine is not a solution.
