(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man close to dying from a recent overdose is charged. 41-year old Marty Tindle is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Level 6 Felony Possession of Heroin.
According to court documents, emergency responders between Christmas and New Year’s Day were called to a home in the 400 block of D Street. Police said Tindle was unconscious in an upstairs bedroom, and his breathing was shallow.
Tindle was given some Narcan, but it took a while for the heroin antidote to bring him back to full consciousness. Police said it appears, judging by the evidence, that he was cooking heroin in a metal spoon before injecting himself with the drug. Tindle could face an up to two and a half year sentence.
Tindle also has other charges like Resisting Law Enforcement filed last month pending in court.
