Two Lawrence County men have been arrested after their truck was found off the side of the road by a JDC deputy Monday afternoon.

Deputy Michael Davis noticed a white truck off Hwy 42 in Prentiss near the entrance to Jeff Davis Lake. Once he approached the vehicle, he realized the engine was running and the vehicle was still in drive.  Two men were inside, both unconscious.

Davis found drugs and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. He was able to alert the driver, but had to administer Narcan to the passenger, who was laying across the center console. AAA arrived on scene but determined no further medical assistance was necessary.
