Woman arraigned after apparent OD, assault


WARREN — Amber Barr, 35, of Tod Avenue Northwest and Monroe Street Northwest, assaulted an ambulance worker after being revived from a drug overdose Friday and was charged with felony assault, two counts of child endangering and possessing drug paraphernalia, police said.

A not guilty plea was entered on the felony assault, and she pleaded not guilty to the other charges today in Warren Municipal Court. Bond was set at $3,500.

Police were called to a home on Woodbine Avenue Southeast at 6:51 p.m. by a girl, 5, saying her mother would not wake up. An officer arrived there first and found Barr unconscious, apparently from a drug overdose.

Barr was rude with ambulance workers who revived her and later assaulted a worker in the back of the ambulance, police said.
