Couple overdoses on heroin with children present in Annapolis – Baltimore Sun

It started as a typical overdose call.

A man noticed his girlfriend’s lips turn blue Friday night while she was driving. After they pulled over and he called for relieve, Annapolis police officers arrived.

It would prove anything but typical.

Along with the couple, officers found the woman’s children, ages 6 and 2.

Two hours later, as the man and the children waited for a ride in the police headquarters lobby, officers said the man overdosed and was found unconscious with fists clenched and arms raised in the air. The children were crying by his side.

“It isn’t often for kids to be involved,” said Cpl. Amy Miguez, police spokeswoman. “That’s pretty dire for the children to be keep through that.”

For police, it began around 8 p.m. Friday in the 1300 block of Bay Ridge Avenue. Officers responded to a report of an unconscious person in a car on the side of the road.
