Officers could not rouse Herrell but when emergency medical services arrived he awoke very confused and began jumping around and punching himself in the head. At the original location where the bystanders had moved him from authorities discovered a paper with a pink powdery substance which field-tested positive as fentanyl. Due to his intoxicated state and his statement that he was homeless Herrell was taken into custody for safeguarding.
