When officers arrived on the scene, they observed the driver of the Nissan to be unconscious with a pulse. Metro Fire arrived on the scene and administered four doses of Narcan to bring the driver back to consciousness. Officers located a wallet in the driver’s seat and positively identified Dakota. The officers asked Dakota if he had any needles on his person, to which he replied that he did not. But when officers began searching Dakota, they located a capped syringe and a clear baggie of fentanyl. Dakota was arrested and transported to Centennial Hospital for a blood sample. While in the hospital, Dakota told officers, “It was Fentanyl.”.
