ROCK HILL, S.C. — A man arrested on drug charges has died after having medical problems in a South Carolina jail.

Rock Hill police say 47-year-old Reginald McCullough was arrested Friday and charged with crack cocaine possession after officers saw what they thought was a drug transaction.

Police say the officers then noticed white powder around McCullough's mouth and offered to get him medical help several times, but he refused.

Authorities say McCullough was taken to the Rock Hill jail and began having medical problems, dying a short time later at the hospital.

The State Law Enforcement Division has been called in to help investigate McCullough's death.
