Default picard error: Mismatch between read length and quals length writing read

I am getting an error in picard when trying to merge some sam files. I can't find this error posted about anywhere. I am wondering if someone knows what it might mean and how i can go about fixing it. The output for me standard error is:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Mismatch between read length and quals length writing read MWR-PRG-0014:8613KTACXX:4:2203:11277:100870_1:N:0:CTTGTA/1; read length: 54995; quals length: 3
