— -- Four Wesleyan University students have been arrested in connection with a rash of MDMA overdoses at the Connecticut school that sent 11 people to the hospital, two in critical condition.

The four were taken into custody this evening, according to the Middletown Police Department.

All of the people who were hospitalized are believed to have taken MDMA, otherwise known as "Molly," but the batch they took most likely "had a mixture of designer drug chemicals," Middletown Police Chief William McKenna said tonight.

The four students were all being held pending bail hearings, and their first court dates are scheduled for March 3, McKenna said.
