A Miamisburg man faces multiple charges after he allegedly overdosed in the back of an Enon police cruiser last week.
Steven Howard Elzey, 34, has been charged with illegal use or possession of marijuana drug paraphernalia and open container violation, according to court records. Elzey was allegedly found with a cup of vodka and orange juice, as well as a pipe with marijuana residue, in a car after he was stopped by Enon police near Dayton Road.
Elzey failed a sobriety test, according to court records, and was placed under arrest. While the officer was completing paperwork, he noticed Elzey appeared to be unconscious and his eyes were rolling in the back of his head while sitting in the back of the cruiser.
The officer began to give Elzey a dose of Narcan. He said he didn’t want it and wasn’t overdosing. Elzey’s speech was extremely slurred, the report said.
Mad River Twp. Fire Department arrived and gave the suspect a dose of Narcan. He was transported to the Springfield Regional Medical Center, treated and then released back to police. He was then placed in the Fairborn jail.
Elzey also had active warrants in both Montgomery County and Fairborn. He appeared in Clark County Municipal Court on Monday and is currently in custody at the Greene County Jail.
