Carroll County Sheriff's Dept. arrests Carrollton man on drug charge
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 10:00 AM
Law enforcement arrested a man for possessing a controlled substance after finding him unconscious in his home on Monday.
Darrin W. Downard, 43, of Carrollton, was found unresponsive in his home by his girlfriend around 7 p.m. Downard had a needle sticking out of his arm, a Carroll County Sheriff's Office release said. The needle was believed to contain heroin.
Carroll County Deputy Sheriff Clay Cable and an ambulance was dispatched to the residence. Cable found Downard's girlfriend, Lisa Hornback, screaming while trying to wake him. She had turned him from his stomach to his back, the release said.
Cable said he attempted to talk to Downard but received no response. Emergency medical technicians transported Downard to Carroll County Memorial Hospital, where he was observed by hospital staff for about two hours before becoming lucid again.
Downard was released from the hospital and charged with possession of a controlled substance. He was lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center.
