A Stafford couple faces drug and DUI charges after Stafford County Sheriff ’s Office deputies responded to a medical emergency at Weis Markets, 905 Garrisonville Road, at 9:43 p.m. April 13, according to sheriff ’s office spokesperson Amanda Vicinanzo.

A witness saw an unconscious female in the passenger’s seat of a vehicle parked in the grocery store parking lot and called deputies.

Rescue personnel revived her using Narcan, and a search of the vehicle yielded open beer cans, a baggie containing brown powdery residue, prescription pill bottles and a substance consistent with marijuana, Vicinanzo said.

The female was identified as Tammy Savage, 55, and she admitted to drinking and using a controlled substance before driving to a 7-Eleven. Her husband, James Savage, 60, then drove from the 7-Eleven to the Weis parking lot across the street.

Tammy Savage was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on charges of possession of controlled substances, possession of marijuana, driving under the influence, driving DUI revoked and open container.

James Savage, who had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage, told a deputy he had been drinking and had driven the vehicle from the 7-Eleven. He was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail until sober on charges of driving under the influence.
