STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – A Stafford County man was revived then arrested after overdosing in a Taco Bell parking lot, according to the Stafford Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say on Friday, April 6, 26-year-old Brian Tyler Edwards overdosed inside a vehicle parked outside of Taco Bell on Garrisonville Road.

A deputy responded to a call regarding an unresponsive male in a vehicle at Taco Bell.

Upon arrival, the deputy located Edwards in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in the drive-thru of the fast-food restaurant.

Deputies say there was a needle in the suspect’s right hand and the vehicle was still in drive.

Edwards was treated by rescue on scene and transported to Rappahannock Regional Jail.

He has been charged with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of controlled paraphernalia.
