According to a report from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, Sheriff Fred Abdalla saved a man overdosing inside the Speedway at the intersection of Washington and 3rd in downtown Steubenville at 12:51 a.m.
The report said the Sheriff walked inside the unlocked bathroom and found a man on the floor, unconscious, not breathing, with a loaded needle next to him and drugs on the sink.
The Sheriff reportedly called an ambulance and began giving Narcan to the man.
The man was able to breathe after the Sheriff administered the drug three times and he was taken to Trinity West and is still there this morning.
According to the report, the loaded needle and other evidence was taken into custody. The man is reportedly being held with a detainer in the hospital, and will be taken into custody for drug abuse when he is released.
