To celebrate his release from a drug rehab facility on the mountain, an Orange County man and his girlfriend decided to spend a few days at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, reported Gilbert Flores, public information officer for the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station.

The couple’s weekend did not turn out well. Paramedics transported the male guest from the Resort to a hospital because of an apparent drug overdose. Deputies took the man’s girlfriend to jail, allegedly due to possession of dangerous drugs, and an animal control officer drove the couple’s dog to an animal shelter for safekeeping, according to a report from the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station.

Front desk and security personnel at the Resort responded immediately at 6:40 p.m. on March 1, when notified that the male guest was not breathing.

Paramedics from the San Bernardino County Fire Department reportedly found a small black bag containing possible cocaine next to the male subject, who appeared to have overdosed on narcotics. They immediately took him to a local hospital, according to the deputy’s report.

The hotel guest, who was not identified, had checked in with his female companion, with whom he was in a dating relationship. The sheriff’s report stated that a search of their rented room turned up more narcotics (believed to be cocaine and heroin), as well as possible ecstasy, located in a drawer containing women’s lingerie.

Stefani Joy Williams, 43, of Mission Viejo, was arrested for allegedly violating California Health and Safety Code §11377, possession of drugs, and §11550(A), apparently for being under the influence of drugs. She was taken to the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino, where she was cited and released 12 hours later. No court appearance has been scheduled.
