False Alarm Emergency Call After Teen Smokes 'Spice'
The following information was supplied by the Stow Police Department.
The Stow Fire Department received a call from a frantic teen July 13 because he said his friend was short of breath and had chest pains.
The boy hung up without giving an address, according to the report. An emergency trace resulted in finding the location where the teens were — the 2000 block of Samira Road.
While EMS went to check the area, a Stow Youth Services employee was able to get a hold of the teen on the phone again. The teen said his 14-year-old friend was "freaking out," which is why he called 9-1-1.
When EMS arrived, they said the teen was OK and there was no medical emergency. The teens were taken to their parents. Police said they determined the teen had smoked "spice" or K2 — a synthetic marijuana.
The police report listed the offenses as: misuse of 9-1-1, disrupting public service, and a minor misdemeanor drug abuse.
