Mixing alcohol and prescription pills ended badly for a Rock Hill man, 44, who was arrested this week for unlawful possession of prescription pills, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
Authorities arrived at a Helms Street home on Tuesday night after the man called 911 to say he’d shot himself, the report states.
When deputies arrived, they found the man “grossly intoxicated” and naked but not harmed, according to the report.
Deputies found no sign of a gunshot wound, the report states, but charged the man with unlawful possession of prescription pills after finding Pliva 434 in the home with no prescription note.
Pliva 434 is a prescription of trazodone hydrochloride--a medication used to treat insomnia, depression, anxiety and fibromyalgia.
The man had taken all of the medication with some alcohol, according to the report.
He was arrested, the report states, and taken to the Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.
