HOLTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say five students at a central Alabama high school had to be taken to a hospital after ingesting medication they got another student.

WSFA-TV (http://bit.ly/2cwf5Jz ) quotes Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin as saying the students from Holtville High School took anti-seizure pills that were given to them by a 16-year-old friend.

The sheriff says the students suffered symptoms including headaches and nausea, and superintendent Andre Harrison says that were taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The sheriff says the 16-year-old who provided the pills was taken into custody.

Officials aren’t releasing the names of any of the students who were involved.
