downtown pasoTwo San Luis Obispo County probation officers assisted a man they found not breathing because of a heroin overdose in a bathroom at the Downtown Brew in Paso Robles.

Officers Jason Hendrix and Christine Carlton were in Paso Robles doing probation checks when they responded to reports of an intoxicated man in the pub’s bathroom. The officers found the man not breathing, on the floor and holding a used syringe.

While working to get the man breathing, the officers radioed paramedics.

After arriving at Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton, the man told the officers he had injected heroin into his neck before going unconscious.
