Columbus police arrested a Hope resident Friday, after the man nearly died from an alleged drug overdose and had to be revived.
Police were called to the 1700 block of Cottage Avenue at about 5 p.m. Friday and found a woman performing CPR on a man who was laying on the kitchen floor, says Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the police. Officers used Narcan, a drug that counteracts the effects of overdoses, taking three doses to revive 24-year-old Michael B. Phelps, Harris said. Phelps was taken to the hospital and in the ambulance officers discovered that Phelps was allegedly carrying a small amount of heroin and a used syringe.
After leaving the hospital, he was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of heroin, the syringe and drug paraphernalia, Harris said.
