BLAINE KY.- On Tuesday afternoon Aug. 6, 2019 on KY Route 201, District 3 Constable Daniel Castle performed a traffic stop that ended in one person almost dying and all three being arrested on drug charges.
While detaining the driver, Joseph Allen of Webbville and passenger, Candi Jo Kimble of Louisa, the third passenger, Melvin Harmon of Webbville, begun “overdosing” and admitted he had ate a “8 Ball” of pills.
He then stopped breathing and Constable Castle recognized the signs immediately and administered the counteracting drug Narcan for emergency situations. Due to his training and classes in how to use Narcan he was able to save Harmon’s life.
An ambulance was on the scene quickly and transported Harmon to TRMC where he was arrested and later taken into custody and lodged at Big Sandy Regional Detention Center. Harmon was arrested for public intoxication of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, drug paraphernalia and a seatbelt violation.
The other two suspects, driver Joseph Allen Davis was arrested for operating a motor vehicle on a suspended license, failure to wear seatbelt, no insurance and drug paraphernalia in his possession.
