Arkansas State Police are investigating at the request of the Sebastian County sheriff's office after an inmate at the county jail was pronounced dead at a hospital after experiencing an apparent seizure at the jail on Friday night.

The detainee — Jacob W. Honeycutt, 36, of Fort Smith — was pronounced dead at Baptist Health-Fort Smith, state police said in a news release on Saturday evening.

Another inmate at the jail told officers around 8:30 p.m. Friday that Honeycutt appeared to be having a seizure, state police said in the release.

Life-saving measures were attempted by nurses and sheriff's office personnel, according to the release.

Honeycutt's body will be sent to the state Crime Laboratory for autopsy, state police said.
