The Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility is two workers short this week after one employee was arrested on a domestic violence charge and a food service contract worker in the facility was arrested for giving small gifts of contraband materials to an inmate.

Tiera Pruitt, age 25, was arrested Jan. 6 for giving tobacco and earphones to an inmate, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Cody Burk said. Pruitt is a kitchen supervisor for Trinity Services, a food service provider for the Pulaski County jail.


On Jan. 7, Little Rock Police arrested Brandashia Hargraves, age 24, on what Burks said was domestic-related charges. Hargraves is an employee at the jail, and the circumstances around the arrest are now under investigation by the professional standards unit of the sheriff’s office.
