Denton police arrested a man Sunday morning on two outstanding warrants after he was cleared by firefighters, who responded to a possible overdose call, according to a police report.

A police spokeswoman said after the man was treated, officers arrested him and took him to the Denton City Jail on the warrants that came from unpaid traffic tickets, records show.

The initial 911 call to the 2200 block of Arrowhead Drive was from a relative who said they could not wake the 22-year-old man who was later arrested and another person, and the relative feared they had taken overdoses of an unspecified drug, the police report shows.
