Bryson was taken to the Boone County Jail but then reported medical problems and was taken to North Arkansas Regional Medical Center for treatment.
He faces charges of aggravated assault, theft by receiving, DWI, refusal to submit to chemical test and carrying a weapon. His bond is set at 75-thousand dollars.
