Patchogue, NY - January 17, 2017 - Suffolk County Police have arrested a man for driving while ability impaired by drugs after a police officer revived him when he was unconscious in his vehicle in Patchogue.

Highway Patrol Officer Thomas Joy witnessed the crash and observed Longo in the vehicle, unconscious. Officer Joy, who was unable to get into the vehicle because the doors were locked, broke a window, and with the assistance of a passing motorist, pulled Longo from the vehicle.

Officer Joy administrated intranasal Narcan to Longo, who regained consciousness.

Longo, 49, of Holbrook, was transported to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue.
