LEXINGTON, Ky. — When Lexington police went to check a report of a man lying on the ground Friday, officers found three others overdosing on a synthetic drug.

The four were taken for treatment and none died, said Lexington Police Lieutenant Brian Peterson.

The incident happened just after 5:30 p.m. Friday at 404 West New Circle Rd. Police had received a report about a man on the ground at a shopping center, Peterson said.

Police found an adult male had rammed his head through the window of a business. He later became combative with police.

Officers saw three other men lying on the ground behind a building overdosing on a drug called Serenity, Peterson said. That is one of many names for what is commonly called synthetic marijuana, a designer drug created by spraying chemicals on organic material. The chemicals can have dangerous effects.
