A Dormont man was arrested on drug charges by Whitehall Borough police after an apparent overdose.
Whitehall Borough police officers arrived at a residence in the 1600 block of Skyline Drive in the Wallace (Prospect) Park area at around 9:47 a.m. on Sunday for a report of an unconscious male, Whitehall police Deputy Chief Richard M. Danko said.
Crews from Medical Rescue Team South Authority also came to the scene to find the man—identified as Nicholas Antonio Miller, 24, of Dormont—in a state of "ineffective breathing," Danko said.
Danko said that Miller was suffering from an apparent overdose of a controlled substance and that he was in possession of a syringe that contained what is suspected to be heroin.
Miller was treated and has been released from UPMC Mercy Hospital, Danko said. Whitehall police are charging Miller with possession of drug paraphernalia.
