Police reportedly responded to a disabled vehicle that was in the roadway and found three men who appeared to be intoxicated or under the influence of a drug. The police further investigated the scene and the individuals, resulting in the arrest of two of the men involved. The men were reportedly charged with possession of drugs.
The incident occurred on a New Hampshire highway. Police say the vehicle was stopped in the road. Two men were outside of the vehicle at the time, another person was in the rear seat of the vehicle. Police said that they talked to the men and determined that the men were likely high.
Further investigation turned up what law enforcement officers called "a small amount of heroin." This was found on one of the men that was arrested. Police said the man also had some Xanax but that he did not have a prescription for it.
A second man was also in possession of Xanax without a prescription, say police. They also report that they found some marijuana on the second individual. The men, aged 18 and 20 respectively, were arrested and their names were reported in the news in relation to the arrests. Both men have court dates on July 14.
It's interesting to note that at least one news outlet made it a point to include an editor's note with this story. The note reminded readers that neither an arrest nor the news story indicates that a conviction was made on the charges. For some individuals, a report of criminal charges in the news can be damaging to professional or social reputation; a conviction can be even more damaging, though, making a strong criminal defense important.
