Man found passed out in car is cited

WARREN

Police cited a Castle Rock Drive man found passed out in his car Wednesday at Elm Road and Larchmont Avenue Northeast who had to be revived with multiple doses of the opiate-reversal antidote Narcan for operating a vehicle impaired.

Reports said officers were called about 2:20 p.m. for a report of an unconscious man in a vehicle at the intersection and when police and paramedics arrived they found Jeffrey Daniel, 62, passed out behind the wheel.

Next to Daniel in the car was a straw and a bag of suspected heroin, reports said.

Reports said paramedics tried to get him to breathe and took him to Trumbull Memorial Hospital, where he was given several doses of Narcan before he woke up.

Besides his citation, the bag found in his car will be tested and additional charges could be filed in the future, police said.
