Detention Office John McBrier
Coweta County law enforcement is investigating a suspected drug overdose at the Coweta County Jail.

According to a written statement released by the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, on Wednesday some inmates on Pod B-4 of the jail alerted Detention Officer John McBrier that another inmate was seizing.

McBrier found the inmate, a 39-year-old man, unresponsive and turning blue. McBrier began CPR while other officers and the jail nurse administered oxygen and used an automatic external defibrillator to shock the inmate’s heart.
By the time the ambulance arrived at the jail, the inmate had a pulse and was semi-alert, the statement said.
“The inmate was taken to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery,” the statement said.
Investigators believe the inmate, who was in jail for non-drug related charges, overdosed on illegal drugs, said Toby Nix, public information officer for the sheriff’s office. He said the inmate was not a part of any work detail.
“It is still an ongoing investigation into how the illegal drugs made it inside our facility,” Nix said. “So there may be charges to come.”
