    A Derry, New Hampshire, man has been arrested after he allegedly tried to drive his car away as firefighters were inside to help him for possible cardiac arrest. 

    Adam King, 27, is facing charges of driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled drug and reckless conduct. 

    Manchester firefighters responded to the area of Lowell Street and Ash Street Tuesday evening for a report of a person passed out in the driver's seat of a running vehicle. 

    Police say firefighters observed a hypodermic needle and spoon with brown residue between King's legs, so they attempted to put the vehicle in park. 

    They say King woke up and drove forward and reverse several times with the firefighters still in the car. 

    Another firefighter flattened a tire using a halogen bar. 

    The firefighters were able to take the keys out of the ignition and subdue King until police arrive. 

    Police say the residue on the spoon tested positive for heroin. 

    King will appear in court Thursday. 

    It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
