A man found unconscious in a bathroom after an alleged heroin overdose now faces felony drug charges.
The woman who was with him at the time also faces drug charges.
Steven A. Dupris, 22. Menasha, has been charged in Waupaca County Circuit Court with possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, three counts of felony bail jumping and three counts of misdemeanor bail jumping.
Paige E. Clumpner, 24, Weyauwega, was charged with possession of narcotics and possession of marijuana.
Shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4, Weyauwega Police Officer Adam Rogge was dispatched to the 700 block of Alfred Street.
When he arrived, Rogge found Dupris lying on the bathroom floor. His face was blue, he was foaming at the mouth, and he was unresponsive, according to the criminal complaint.
Clumpner was standing over Dupris’ prone body. She said she believed he had overdosed on heroin, but initially denied being in the bathroom with Dupris at the time, police say.
Rogge turned Dupris over onto his back and began chest compressions until the paramedics arrived.
After helping move Dupris to the ambulance, Rogge found a syringe, several pieces of tin foil and a silver spoon with a dried brown powder which tested positive for heroin, the complaint says.
Clumpner later told police she had been in the bathroom with Dupris. She reportedly said he injected her with heroin and she passed out. When she awoke, he was on the floor.
Officers reported finding marijuana in Clumpner’s possession when she was booked at the county jail.
On Nov. 5, 2013, Dupris appeared in Waupaca County Circuit Court on charges of possession of narcotics and possession of a controlled substance. He was released on a $2,000 signature bond with the condition that he not possess any illegal drugs.
