JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – A possible overdose on Feb. 16 ended with an arrest. Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Dakota Williams went to a home at 549 McGhee Lane where he found Anthony Nacale Spradlin in a hallway bathroom of the home sitting upright in the floor. As Deputy Michael Harness was talking to Spradlin when Williams saw an empty pill bottle in plain view. Inside the bottle was a small baggie with a brown substance inside of it.
Williams asked the man if he had taken any illegal narcotics to which he allegedly replied he had taken a very small amount of Heroin. He then asked what was in the small baggie in the pill bottle and Spradlin responded “the rest of the Heroin,” according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
Williams noticed a spoon with burn marks laying on the counter along with an uncapped hypodermic syringe laying inside the sink. Campbell County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrived and spoke with Spradlin who refused medical aid. EMS first responders said they administered a small dose of Narcan for precaution. As a result, Spradlin was up and walking. Spradlin also refused medical assistance, the report said.
Spradlin was arrested and charged with possession of schedule I controlled substance. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/25/2022-6AM)
