25-year-old Jason Hood claims he passed out while in jail due to his inability to obtain insulin while there.

Hood has type one diabetes, and after being arrested for a disturbance here in Taylor County, he says he didn't have the chance to grab his insulin before being taken the jail.

Hood also claims his mother brought the insulin to the jail for them to give to him, yet, according to Hood, it was still not given to him, ultimately leading to him passing out in the jail.

Hood’s mother has expressed her frustration and says she might consider legal action.

We have contacted the Sheriff’s Office for comment and are awaiting a reply.
