Drugs suspected after man hits Boardman apartment building


BOARDMAN — Police suspect a man who ran his car into an apartment building Wednesday may have been on heroin.

Daniel Garman, 24, of Boardman failed to negotiate a turn on Applecrest Court and went over a curb crashing into a tree and apartment building about 9:30 Wednesday, according to a police report.

Paramedics said they used two doses of Narcan to revive Garman when they arrived at the scene.

He repeatedly asked officers if he had crashed and if he had hurt anyone.

Police found the bottom of a soda can in his car which appeared to have been used to cook heroin, the report said.

Garman faces charges for illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and failure to maintain reasonable control of his vehicle.

Police have not received the results of a blood test.
