City man faces drug charges after apparent Austintown OD


AUSTINTOWN — A Youngstown man faces drug charges after reportedly overdosing at a Burkey Road address over the weekend.

David Davis, 38, of Brockway Avenue, is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of drugs and possession of drug-abuse instruments.

Township police responded to the reported drug overdose Sunday afternoon, according to a police report.

Police found Davis lying unresponsive in a driveway, where someone was performing CPR on him. Davis was revived without the help of Narcan, an opioid-overdose antidote that police carry.

Police reportedly found a crack pipe, hypodermic needles, burnt spoons with suspected heroin residue on them, and other drug-related items at the scene.

Davis was issued summonses on the charges. An additional charge of child endangering is possible, according to the report, as a 7-year-old child was at the scene at the time of the incident.
