Arcade police responded to a drug overdose last week where a man had reportedly taken approximately 30 Adderall pills and was “acting out.”

The incident occurred on Ramblers Inn Rd. where the man was found in the roadway in front of a residence yelling, cursing and threatening his roommate and her daughter.

The man “did not appear to be in his right state of mind,” according to the incident report. He was sweating profusely, wearing only a pair of shorts, and could not be still, according to the responding officer.

Due to his behavior and the alleged threats, he was handcuffed. Jackson County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrived on the scene and transported him to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for treatment.
