A man was given an emergency nasal spray and taken to the hospital after officers found him and a woman passed out in a Braselton parking lot.

Officers with the Braselton Police Department were called to a Hwy. 53 convenience store for a report of two people passed out in a vehicle at a gas pump.

They were able to wake up a woman who was in the vehicle and said she appeared disoriented and her speech didn't make sense at times. The man was unresponsive, even after the woman slapped him on the face.

Officers administered two doses of Narcan, an emergency nasal spray used for overdoses, and Jackson County EMS ultimately took the man to Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton.

Inside the vehicle, officers found suspected marijuana; a needle/syringe; a white powder substance; and numerous burnt straws and pieces of tin foil.

The woman, Alycia Monet Smith, 31, 105 Cherokee Pl., Fayetteville, was arrested for possession of marijuana; possession of a Schedule I or II substance; and possession of drug-related objects. Officers said warrants are forthcoming for the man on the same charges.
