MIAMI (AP) - A 22-year-old South Florida man was arrested after nine Miami Carol Park Senior High students became ill after eating brownies at school.

The Miami Herald reports Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called to the school Thursday after receiving calls about possible overdoses.

School districts officials say the students were taken to local hospitals, mostly as a precautionary measure. Spokesman John Schuster says a 10th grader was treated and released at the school.

Authorities say Dionisio Lockridge was charged with possession of cocaine, Xanax and marijuana with intent to sell.
