A young man from Kodak, Tenn., made himself welcome at an acquaintance's home on Thursday, where Greeneville Police Department officers reportedly found him passed out in a bathroom.
Officer Eric Scott said in his report that 18-year-old Christopher Michael Barton, of 922 Leconte View Way, Kodak, had shown up at the home of a young woman of his acquaintance and stayed despite her telling him he was unwelcome in a reportedly intoxicated state.
"He had a beer with him and made his way into the house and then into the bathroom," Scott said in the report. In the bathroom, the report said, he "passed out to a point that he was unresponsive."
The resident called police, concerned for Barton's safety, according to the report.
Officers located him there and found him "totally unresponsive until shaken."
When Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services staff arrived, they were able to sit him up and get him to move into the living room, where he reportedly said he had "only drank beer and taken two Klonopin."
Scott said in the report that EMS officials told Barton he could go to a hospital for treatment or go with police.
He asked to be taken to Takoma Regional Hospital, Scott wrote in the report.
Scott said officers located a syringe reportedly containing Klonopin in Barton's back pocket.
He was arrested, charged with public intoxication, possession of drug paraphernalia and consumption of alcohol under age 21, and transported to the Greene County Detention Center.
Bond was set at $2,300. He was scheduled to appear in court this morning.
