Green Township police officials have recently arrested an Ohio father who was driving under the influence of heroin. According to police documents, the man’s 11-year-old son was also in the car and begged his father to stop the car, as the man was driving erratically. The emergency response team was forced to use Narcan in order to resuscitate the Ohio father.
The Police Department from Green Township Ohio declared that they have recently taken an individual in custody and charged him with driving under the influence of narcotics and child endangerment.
According to the police officials, James Beasley III, a 43-year-old Ohio father, took his 11-year-old son on a drive on Friday night. Before getting behind the wheel, the man consumed a fair amount of heroin. Upon arriving near the 6700 block of Ruwes Oak Drive, Beasley started to accuse severe OD-associated symptoms and began to drive erratically.
Seeing that his father could lose control of the vehicle in any second, the boy begged his father to stop the vehicle. The car suddenly stopped, as Beasley struck a fence. However, by that time, the man had already lost his consciousness.
A nearby officer monitoring traffic saw the man crash into the fence and went to investigate. After arriving at the car, the officer immediately realized that the man overdosed and called in an emergency response team.
The paramedics gave the Ohio father an ampule of Narcan and managed to resuscitate him after a few minutes. However, this was not the end of the story. According to the authorities, after spending a night at the hospital, the 43-year-old Ohio father was taken into custody and charged with child endangerment, driving under the influence of narcotics, and with several other traffic offenses.
During his interview, the man told the investigators that, before getting into the vehicle, he consumed a fair amount of heroin. However, he refused to say anything when the investigators asked him why he did it.
Fortunately, the 11-year-old child was not injured during the trip. As for his father, James Beasley III is currently being detained at the Hamilton County Jail, and an $85,000 was posted on his behalf. The man is scheduled to appear before the court on the 14th of February. Should he be found guilty, he will have to spend some time in a detox clinic in order to get over his heroin addiction.
