A 37-year-old Racine man faces two felony charges after his arrest June 20 after leaving a woman at a McDonald’s as she was overdosing on heroin.
Bobby W. Lemmons was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with felony counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and manufacturing/delivering heroin. Both carry a fine of $25,000 and 12 years, six months in prison.
Lemmons made his initial appearance in Racine County Circuit Court on Thursday afternoon.
According to the criminal complaint:
Officers with the Caledonia Police Department were dispatched June 20 to the McDonald’s at 5125 Douglas Ave., in the Village of Caledonia, for a report of a woman down in the parking lot. Witnesses told police they saw a white Mercury circle the parking lot several times, then pull over at the east side of the building. The defendant got out, pulled the woman out and asked if anybody knew CPR.
When a witness said he did, the man left the scene. Police went to Lemmons’ residence, where they found the Mercury. A person at the residence told police that Lemmons returned and left quickly in a different vehicle.
Police spoke with the woman, who stated around 8 p.m. she was with Lemmons when he left to get her $20 worth of heroin. The two drove to a park in Racine, where she snorted the heroin. She remembered going back to the house but that was all she remembered until she woke up in an ambulance.
Lemmons is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center.
