News Staff Report

An Atmore man got a rude awakening — and arrested — recently, after Atmore police officers found him unconscious inside a vehicle, then found illegal substances in his car and on his person.
The incident took place around 10:40 p.m. on October 30, when police were sent to investigate a vehicle that was parked at the intersection of Alabama 21 and Brooks Lane.
Officers arrived to find a man, later identified as 25-year-old Sakari York of Atmore, passed out inside the vehicle.
They also noticed a plastic bag on the console that contained synthetic marijuana (Spice). More Spice was later discovered in York’s pants pockets.
He was charged with possession of a controlled substance and taken to the Escambia County Detention Center, where he remained early Tuesday, November 8.
