A 30-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday after he swallowed several illicit drugs in a Macon hotel room after the arrival of two deputies who were responding to a call about possible prostitution, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report.
A clerk at the Riverside Drive hotel told deputies she had seen on a website that a woman, who was using two different rooms at the hotel, was soliciting sexual favors, the report said. When deputies knocked on one of the doors, a woman let them inside where a man, later identified as Jarvis Holloway, was looking nervous lying on the bed, the report said.
Deputies asked Holloway if there were any guns or drugs in the room, but Holloway only mumbled and reached toward the foot of the bed, the report said. A deputy pulled back the covers and discovered a gray gun with the serial number shaved off. Then, deputies noticed a possible marijuana joint and a clear bag that appeared to contain meth, according to the report. A further search yielded more meth.
While deputies waited with the man and woman for investigators, Holloway told them he'd swallowed a few grams of heroin and meth, the report said. Emergency responders were called to hotel, and Holloway was fed charcoal to remove the drugs from his system.
