An inmate in the Martinez Detention Facility was placed in intensive care Thursday after apparently attempting suicide, a sheriff's spokesman said.
The 21-year-old Pleasanton resident was found unresponsive in his cell at 2:54 p.m., sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said.
He was taken to Contra Costa Regional Medical Center. Lee did not disclose the name of the inmate or why he was in jail.
