WARREN, Ohio -

In spite of the recent media attention to first responders saving lives by administering Narcan, not everyone who receives the opiate overdose reversal drug is immediately happy about it.

Warren police report an incident on Thursday when officers were called to a reported overdose at the Riverview Motel on Parkman Road.

While on the way, police were notified that on a previous occasion, alleged overdose victim, 40-year-old Gregory Miller, Sr., became violent and fought Niles Police when they attempted to administer Narcan.

Niles police say at the time they had to use their Tasers on Miller three times.

On Thursday, Warren police insisted that Miller was handcuffed before they allowed EMT's to give him Narcan.

Officers say when Miller began to regain consciousness, he began shouting and attempting to fight with the EMTs.

Miller eventually calmed down and was taken to St. Joseph Hospital for further treatment.

Police say they found several hypodermic syringes and a crack pipe in the motel room.

Miller was then booked into the Trumbull County Jail where he pleaded not guilty to charges of possessing drug paraphernalia and drug abuse instruments during a video court arraignment.

He's due back in Court on September 26.
