Firefighter revived, then arrested, after OD’ing behind the wheel

Sharing is caring!

An FDNY firefighter was revived after a suspected heroin overdose in his car on Staten Island — and then busted, cops said on Saturday.

Daris John, 31, was inside his car with the engine running just before 9 p.m. Friday at Hunter Avenue and Idlease Place in Midland Beach when another motorist tried to get around him and make a turn, cops said.

Realizing that John was unconscious, the driver called 911, according to police.

Cops administered the opioid-blocking drug Narcan and brought John to a local hospital, police said. They found narcotics residue — believed to be heroin — on the driver’s seat.

He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs, cops said.

In an unrelated incident, a second city employee, NYPD communications technician Johnny Valle, 41, was busted around 5:30 a.m. for allegedly slapping his 35-year-old wife during a dispute in her Bushwick home, cops said.

He was charged with assault, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.
