Man Found Unconscious in Farmington Hills Parking Lot May Face Charges

The following information was supplied by the Farmington Hills Police Department. Arrests and charges do not indicate a conviction.

A 58-year-old Waterford man may face narcotics-related charges after Farmington Hills police found him laying unconscious in a parking lot at 12 Mile and Orchard Lake roads late Friday afternoon. 

According to the report, officers were called to a medical facility on a report that a man was having a heart attack. They eventually found the unresponsive man laying on his back in the rear of the parking lot. As medics were treating the man, police learned that he had a recent arrest for heroin possession and driving under the influence of drugs. The report indicated that medics observed signs of a drug overdose. 

The man was taken to Botsford Hospital, where personnel turned his clothes over to police, based on concerns that he may have kept needles in his pockets, according to the report. As police searched the clothes, they found two folds of heroin. 

Drunken driving arrest

A 40-year-old Livonia woman faces a charge of drunken driving after her vehicle was stopped shortly before 3 a.m. Tuesday on Eight Mile Road west of Inkster in Redford Township. 

According to the report, an officer on patrol stopped the vehicle after he watched the driver make an erratic left turn from west to east Eight Mile, stopping in two lanes and causing other drivers to swerve around her. The driver then took off at a high rate of speed on Eight Mile. A preliminary breath test showed her blood alcohol level was .12, which is more than the .08 legal limit.
