The Pulaski sheriff's office says David Honey, 34, of Fayetteville was found hanged from a bedsheet attached to a cell door frame about 9:40 p.m. Saturday.
A spokesman for the sheriff said the death was a suicide. Honey was placed in custody Friday on North Little Rock charges of criminal mischief and public intoxication.
Honey was in a cell for a single inmate. Those cells are checked hourly, a spokesman said.
