Paso Robles Probation officers and paramedics say they were able to revive a man who had reportedly overdosed on opiates and heroin before becoming unconscious at Downtown Brew in Paso Robles.
It happened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Officers were called out to the restaurant for reports of an intoxicated man in the bathroom. When they arrived at the scene, they found the man lying face down in the bathroom stall. He was unresponsive and not breathing. Officers say he had a used syringe in his hand.
Probation officers say he appeared to have overdosed on opiates. They called for medical help and worked to get the man breathing again. They searched through his backpack and found several more used syringes as well as a bottle of Xanax.
Paramedics got to the scene and gave him a dose of Narcan, and the man immediately started breathing again.
He was taken to a local hospital by ambulance. At the hospital, he told the probation officers he had injected a dose of heroin into his neck before he became unconscious.
Officers haven't released any further information on his condition.
