    Need to keep these POS of the roads.

    I don’t care what you do in your own home, but when you are putting our lives at risk because you are an idiot, then I have a problem.

    Next time let these people OD. Keep them off the street.

      Is this considered racist, or nah? Cuz this comment is considered racist on the other thread. Asking for a friend

      I’m sorry, this may be my fault. I called in an OD in the early hours of Feb 8th at the California WaWa and I suspect it may have been this guy. He was a white male sitting in a black Mitsubishi Lancer. I can’t see his face in the picture, but it could be him. My bad everyone.

    Stop protecting them and release the overdose persons name.

    Selfish junkies, endangering lives every day. They should confiscate his car and crush it while he watches.

    • Ned on March 11, 2019 at 9:54 am

      Driving that POS is punishment enough

    how much do you want to bet he was upset that you stopped his ‘high’.

    Soo the driver gets charged with d.u.I right?

    • Ted Nugent on March 11, 2019 at 2:55 pm

      Probably not. Thanks to MD and their stupid laws that won’t allow police to charge them if they overdosed. Keep voting Democrat my friends.

      • Five O on March 11, 2019 at 5:52 pm

        Actually, charges are pending if the drug teat comes back positive.

        • Ted Nugent on March 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm

          They can charge all they want. Let’s see if the State’s Attorney follows through. In Maryland, the Good Samaritan Law provides immunity from criminal prosecution when people call 9-1-1 during an alcohol or drug-related overdose. Even if this dumba$$ didn’t call, he’s protected now.

    It’s time to let these folks simply expire… Play stupid games, win stupid prizes… AND yes even if it were MY child… Stop wasting tax payer money and putting first responders in harms way for folks who never gave a crap about themselves… NO it’s NOT a disease either!!!

  7. Anonymous on March 11, 2019 at 8:58 am

    Wow! Out high as a kite running into the back of people. I sure hope this idiot gets charged with DUI and then some! As another person commented, I don’t care what you do in your own home but don’t get in a vehicle and endanger others!!!

  8. Anonymous on March 11, 2019 at 9:36 am

    So just fyi when someone is caught in the act of an OD and get sent to the hospital they are not charged with anything. Look it up. They made a law out of it. Welcome to maryland y’all!

    • walter c smith on March 11, 2019 at 1:53 pm

      Wonder what the dollar figure is on an event such as this? Figure that you’ve got a few cops, an ambulance or two on the scene. We’re wasting a lot of time and resources. If they don’t arrest the person they should still make them pay for everyone’s time….and normally they don’t have any money so send them to jail.

    • Ted Nugent on March 12, 2019 at 3:01 pm

      You can thank your leaders in Annapolis for this tripe.

  9. Charles on March 11, 2019 at 10:56 am

    Should have let them OD

  10. Anonymous on March 11, 2019 at 11:02 am

    Just let these junkies expire! They have no value to society. Innocent people should not have their lives and property at risk because these losers choose a slow death.

  11. Chris H. on March 11, 2019 at 11:38 am

    Should have just saved the narcan. Natural selection at it’s best. Live the syringe, die by the syringe. Freaking trash a$$ junkie!

  12. Socks Martin on March 11, 2019 at 2:23 pm

    Pretty awful. It’s amazingly bad timing as another young lady that’s often seen on this site passed away due to her inability to kick the habit. I wished people would see her decline and sad ending and learn a lesson.

  13. exrep on March 11, 2019 at 3:01 pm

    treatment refusal forms should be attached to aa arrest warrant as well

    • dave on March 11, 2019 at 7:51 pm

      read moron, he was transported he didn’t refuse. You want the victims to be arrested?

      • Adam 12 on March 12, 2019 at 3:06 pm

        Victim? You mean the guy who was in possession of an illegal substance and driving high?

  14. Die yupy skumm on March 11, 2019 at 4:24 pm

  15. Anonymous on March 12, 2019 at 4:23 am

    This is a d.u.I. . charge them

  16. The REAL Truth on March 12, 2019 at 8:01 am

    So wait a minute… let me get this straight. You go out to the bar and have too many drinks. You get in your car and slam into someone and its DUI for you and possible jail time! You go out to a friend’s house. You take one too many Opioids, OD, and slam into someone and its a free booster shot and ride to the hospital with no jail time?

    Anyone else see something wrong with that?

    • Rushed on March 12, 2019 at 9:51 am

      Relax, he will be charged.
      The reason Drunks get charged so quickly is that their BAC can be detected very quickly by a breath test. In fact, the sooner you issue the test the better. In the case of an opioid overdose, a blood test must be done so the police will wait for the results before they charge them. It will happen!

      • Dats my Boo on March 13, 2019 at 5:53 pm

        Sorry Boo, law says differently. Research it yourself.

    • Anonymous on March 12, 2019 at 12:43 pm

      Makes no sense at all! Impaired driving is impaired driving, period, no free passes allowed. This POS could have easily killed someone. Even if he gets charged, he’ll get a slap on the wrist and sent back out to try again… they all do. Let them terminate themselves and save our tax money.

  17. Because I got high on March 12, 2019 at 8:13 am

    What percentage of Narcan recipients “learn the lesson” and get clean? 1% ? Might be time to start putting the public as a whole above the junkies and just stop using narcan. Every time a junky is saved we are putting the public in danger cuz its going to happen again. Might was well just flood the streets with the really strong stuff. 2 birds with one stone. You get rid of the junkies and protect society, and you eliminate half of the welfare recipients draining society… Sorry, not sorry

    Why? He didn’t care about those around him so why waste resources with saving him?

    And yes, I would say the same thing if that was a family member.

    I know about the Good Samaritan Law protecting people O.D.ing from drug charges, but are you guys sure they get NO CHARGES related to the driving under the influence portion of the law?!
