A Dormont man was cited and hospitalized after a police officer found him lying on a sidewalk in the 1300 block of Peermont Avenue.
An officer on patrol saw the man, identified as Michael Devine, 63, lying on the sidewalk on Peermont Avenue at midnight on Aug. 4. According to the police report, Devine was conscious but unable to sit up, and when the officer asked Devine if he knew what day it was, Devine answered, “November.”
Devine refused medical treatment at the scene and at the Dormont Police Station, but police contacted Medical Rescue Team South Authority to respond when officers saw that Devine had injuries to his head and cheek, and was bleeding from his right hand.
Devine was taken to St. Clair Hospital for treatment. He was issued a non-traffic citation for public drunkenness.
