(KMOV) – Two St. Louis-area men face charges after they were found passed out in a Louisville police parking lot after the Kentucky Derby early Sunday morning.
Darelle Simmons, 37, and Dwight Brown, 44, were both charged with public intoxication, possession of an open alcoholic container in a motor vehicle, possession of marijuana and first-degree possession of heroin.
According to police, the suspects were found sleeping inside a Cadillac Escalade around 7:10 a.m. in the parking lot at 3315 Newburg Rd.
Police say officers discovered heroin and marijuana in bags sitting on Simmons’ lap, as well as open beer and wine containers in the SUV’s center console.
According to police, both men smelled strongly of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes.
