SKOWHEGAN — A Warren man was arrested Friday night after police and emergency personnel were sent to West Front Street in response to a report of a drug overdose.

An employee at West Front Market contacted the Somerset County Regional Communications Center just before 9 p.m. to report the medical emergency, according to Detective Katelyn Nichols, of the Skowhegan Police Department.

West Front Street was ablaze with red and blue lights in a light snow, observers said.

Robert David Hamilton, 36, of Warren, suffered from a drug overdose but survived, Nichols said. He was taken to Redington-Fairview General Hospital, where he was treated.

He later was arrested for violating his probation. He remained held without bail Saturday at the Somerset County Jail in East Madison.
