CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Vermont man has been sentenced to four years in New Hampshire on drug and firearms charges.

Twenty-seven-year-old Nicholas Patten, of Williston, Vermont, had previously pleaded guilty.

Court documents and statements say in 2018, a New London police officer stopped to assist a driver and observed Patten slumped down in a the driver’s seat. The officer also saw several needles, tourniquets, a syringe, and white powder on Patten’s jeans.

The officer said Patten woke up and began to thrash about, screaming things like “‘Help,’” “‘I’m drowning,’” and “‘I’m trapped.’” A search warrant turned up cocaine, other drugs, cash, and a loaded pistol.
