Police revive woman suffering from overdose
Three Conway officers helped revive a woman suffering from a drug overdose last weekend.
According to an incident report, authorities were called to a Fleming Street residence shortly after noon on March 9 regarding a woman who was suffering from "a possible overdose."
Witnesses on scene told responding officers the woman in question "was putting on makeup when she started closing her eyes" when she passed out.
Officer Peter Beck conducted a sternum rub as officer Hannah Fleming began administering Narcan, which is a nasal spray that can reverse an opioid overdose, on the 36-year-old woman to help revive her. After receiving one dose of the Naloxone (Narcan) spray, the woman "blinked her eyes open briefly and raised her left hand."
Just after she raised her arm and blinked, the woman "closed her eyes again and dropped her hand" when Sgt. Tom Kennedy opted to give the woman a second dose of Narcan. Following the second dose, the woman was able to speak with first responders who arrived and left the home via ambulance to receive treatment at Conway Regional Medical Center.
Conway County man says he's Post Malone, arrested
A Hattieville man who claimed to be Post Malone is behind bars in the Faulkner County Detention Center on drug-related charges and more.
According to a probable cause affidavit, authorities were asked to check on a man who was sitting in the middle of the road on Fourth Street early Monday morning.
Officer Jim Pfrenger noted in his report that he "believed the male to be under the influence of a stimulant" after finding the man "sitting in the middle of the roadway with no shirt on in [40-degree] temperatures and the rain."
The man told police he was Post Malone and refused to tell police his real name, according to the report. Because they believed the man was impaired and he would not tell officers his name, authorities arrested the suspect on suspicion of public intoxication and obstruction of governmental operations.
Upon his arrest, authorities found 3 grams of suspected methamphetamine and a glass pipe in 34-year-old Cartus Demon Hawkins's pocket. Online records show the contraband led to two felony charges — possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia — and that the 24-year-old Hattieville resident remained behind bars in lieu of a $25,000 as of press time Friday.
The Conway County man is currently scheduled to appear before Judge Troy B. Braswell Jr. at 9 a.m. March 25 for a plea and arraignment hearing regarding the allegations against him.
