FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - An inmate at a South Florida jail has committed suicide.

Authorities say 33-year-old Charles Valerie made a noose out of a bed sheet at the Broward Sheriff's Office main jail. He was found hanging from the top bunk of his cell on Sunday. Authorities tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the jail.

Authorities say Valerie was arrested Oct. 25 on charges of aggravated fleeing and eluding, grand theft, petit theft, car burglary and possession of burglary tools. He was awaiting trial.
