Inmate Dies at White County Jail

SEARCY, AR - White County authorities say a Bald Knob man jailed on a charge of felony domestic battery is dead after he became ill in the county jail at Searcy and was taken to a hospital by ambulance.

A news release from the White County Sheriff's office said 55-year-old James Arthur Haynes was transported from the jail to the White County Medical Center about 11:30 this morning, and pronounced dead in the hospital's emergency room.

The release said Haynes, who had a history of heart problems, began complaining of nausea at the jail and was taken to the facility's medical bay, where he stopped breathing.  According to the release, emergency medical technicians tried unsuccessfully to revive Haynes before he was taken to the hospital.

The release said Haynes's death is being investigated by the Criminal Investigation Division of the sheriff's office.  According to the release, he was arrested May 10 by the Bald Knob Police Department and had been held since then in lieu of $20,000 bond.
