On Tuesday, Van Buren police released dash camera video showing the arrest of two men who looked like they were swallowing drugs while they were handcuffed, in the back of a patrol car.

The police video showed Jacob Jones and his uncle, David Alverson, being arrested after a traffic stop Friday afternoon.

Jones died less than 24-hour after being booked into the Crawford County Detention Center.

His mother, Catherine Jones, told 40/29 News it took several hours before Jones received medical attention while in jail.

In a statement released by Crawford County Sheriff Jim Damante, he said the medical examiner reported Jones died from a drug overdose after a plastic bag opened inside his stomach. Damante said toxicology reports have not yet determined what substance was responsible for the fatal overdose.

Damante denied claims that it took jailers several hours to render medical aid to Jones. Surveillance video from inside the detention center has not yet been released.
