BAXTER COUNTY -

Two Baxter County Jail Inmates were taken to a local hospital Thursday night after purposely drinking bleach.

26-year-old Haley Marie Sullivan and 23-year-old Brandy Mae Qualls were taken to Baxter Regional Medical Center to be treated but later returned to the detention center.

The Baxter County Sheriff says that a cleaning cart had been taking into the female housing pod so that the inmates could clean their area, a daily procedure. Sullivan and Qualls took the bleach from the cart and drank it. Other inmates told the jail staff that there was a problem when the two women got sick.

Right now officials don't know what made the women want to drink the bleach, but they have been transferred to the Arkansas State Hospital for screening and further evaluation.

Qualls was being held for one felony and one misdemeanor arrest warrant for failure to appear. Sullivan was being held on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges of forgery, theft, failure to appear in court and for having her bond revoked on previous charges.

Both women will return to the Baxter County Jail once released from Arkansas State Hospital.
