Five People Busted After Drug Overdose Leads To Gun Incident In Springfield
The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office says that their deputies were called to the 500 block of Upton Ave. in the City of Springfield around 1:15am, in order to help first responders with a medical emergency. When deputies arrived, a 35-year-old Springfield man was lying in the driveway after being dumped from a car, suffering from an apparent heroin overdose.
While the OD victim was being treated with Narcan, the victim's 67-year-old father came out of the home brandishing a handgun. EMTs took cover, and deputies were eventually able to take the man into custody.
This incident led to a search warrant being executed at the home, and numerous weapons were recovered from inside. Three people, a Battle Creek woman and two Battle Creek men, were also still inside the vehicle parked in the driveway.
All five individuals were arrested on various charges, including felon in possession of a firearm, association with a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and solicitation.
