Two arrested in Clarksville drug overdose

Woman says her ex ‘shot her up’ with heroin

CLARKSVILLE — A Clarksville woman who overdosed on heroin Saturday said her ex-boyfriend injected the drug into her arm.

Now they’re both in jail facing drug-related charges.

Police and EMS responded to the ex-boyfriend’s home on Mayfair Drive where they found Kelsey E. Hale, 21, overdosed on heroin in the basement.

Hale, Dr. Dot Lewis Drive, was later treated at Clark Memorial Hospital, and following her release, she was booked into the Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex along with Langley, 23, who was also arrested during the incident.

Before leaving the hospital, Hale told a Clarksville officer that she wanted to talk to him about the events that led to her hospitalization.

She said she had left Langley’s home to run errands, and when she returned, Langley made a telephone call to have heroin delivered.

Hale told the officer that while she was in the basement of the home, “[Langley] tied her arm off and shot her up with heroin.”

She told police the only thing she could remember was standing up, walking around the room and waking up in the ambulance.

Hale said that she has used heroin five to six times and each time with Langley.

When police first arrived to Langley’s residence, EMS was treating Hale in an ambulance outside of the home.

Police entered the home and talked with Langley, who said Hale is his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child.

Like Hale, Langley told police that Hale had left the home to run errands, but that she had returned “doped up” and in possession of heroin.

Langley later changed his story, police reported, saying he and Hale decided to get the heroin after she returned to the home.

Police asked Langley if there was still heroin in the home, and he directed officers to a smartphone box.

“Inside the box was a syringe, a sliver spoon, a pill bottle and a plastic baggie with heroin,” according to the police report.

Hale and Langley have each been preliminarily charged with possession of heroin and possession of syringe, both class D felonies, and possession of paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.

No information was available on online court records of either Hale or Langley’s upcoming court hearings. Records do show, however, Langley was placed on a one-year probation term in July 2012, following a guilty plea of class A misdemeanor conversion.

Four months into his probation, an arrest warrant was issued out of Clark County for a charge of class B felony burglary.

Langley was arrested in January, and after spending four days in jail, he was released and placed on home incarceration for pretrial release.

A jury trial is scheduled in early December for the burglary charge.
