Man Found Passed Out at Hall Road Intersection; Police Find Drugs, Paraphernalia

The following information was supplied by the Shelby Township Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A 22-year-old Fraser man was arrested last Sunday night in Utica on charges of operating while under the influence of drugs.

Utica police officers found the man passed out behind the wheel of his Jeep Cherokee at the intersection on Hall Road and Schoenherr roads.

According to a police report, the man was slurring his speech and admitted to taking some prescription drugs that had made him drowsy.

During a search of the vehicle, officers found a drug scale with marijuana residue, empty medical marijuana prescription pill bottles, 15 Adderall pills, Mason jars with marijuana residue, a grinder full of marijuana, a vaporizer and a marijuana bud under the seat.

Police said the man had a medical marijuana card, but it had expired just three days before the incident. Also, he was driving on a suspended license.

The man was transported to Troy Beaumont Hospital for a toxicology report and then booked at the Utica police station until he sobered up.

His vehicle was also impounded.

This is the second driver to fall asleep behind the wheel on Hall road. I believe the other driver was at Van Dyke and Hall (about a month or so ago). The first guy was reportedly in a deep sleep with his foot on the brake at an intersection. Prescription drugs were probably in play there as well.

I feel sorry for his parents.With our economy the way it is, he's probably still living at home. They'll become the victims here. When fines are handed down a 22 year old wont have the money. They'll probably have to come up off of the cash for bail, fines, legal fees and getting the car out of the pound.
