TARRANT, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say an inmate was found dead and hanging by his clothing less than three hours after being booked into the city jail in a Birmingham suburb.
  
The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office identified the inmate as 62-year-old David M. Farley, who was found hanging in his cell at the Tarrant City Jail Wednesday. Al.com reports that he was pronounced dead at a hospital later that night.
  
Tarrant police Lt. Phillip George said officers had arrested Farley about 9 p.m. Wednesday on a disorderly conduct charge. Police said Farley was intoxicated and there had been an argument at his home.
  
Tarrant is about 5 miles (8 kilometers) northeast of downtown Birmingham, just north of the city’s airport.
