45-year-old Travis Garren was found unconscious with shallow breathing in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in the drive-thru for Arbys on Gallatin Pike on September 27th. Police arrived and spoke with the Nashville Fire Department medics, who gave Travis Narcan and revived him up. The medics asked for Travis’s vehicle key to keep him from driving, and they said he entered Arby’s and bought food. Police contacted Travis as he walked out of Arby’s and asked him what had happened. Travis said that he did not know and was profusely sweating. After he performed poorly on sobriety tests, he told police that whatever the medics gave him was making him feel weird. Police placed him into custody, and he had to ask them for a towel to wipe his face due to excessive sweating. When police confirmed his identity with his driver’s license, they reported that he had a previous DUI in 2016. He was transported to Metro General Hospital for a blood draw. While there, Travis complained of pain and was still sweating profusely.
