CELEXA & ALCOHOL: Vehicular Homicide: Nevada

Paragraphs two and three read:  “The suspect is in jail,
accused of killing Bob Childress who was simply on his way to work.
Jacques Norton faces a charge of felony DUI causing death. The
charge accuses him of being under the influence of drugs with
enhancement of alcohol.”

“Police believe Norton got carried
away with the prescription anti-depressant Celexa and mixed that, with a
handful of mixed drinks.
He was reportedly so out of it, police had to
stop a field sobriety test for his own safety.”

SSRI Stories Note:

The Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and
alcohol abuse.
Also, the liver cannot
metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously,  thus leading
to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the human
body.

Police say suspect in
deadly DUI crash didn’t know what month it was


Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) – A man is dead after being killed by a
suspected intoxicated driver on Easter morning. An arrest reports says the
22-year-old suspect had been out at a club earlier in the night, drinking
alcohol and popping pills.

The suspect is in jail, accused of killing
Bob Childress who was simply on his way to work.  Jacques Norton faces a
charge of felony DUI causing death. The charge accuses him of being under the
influence of drugs with enhancement of alcohol.

Police believe Norton got
carried away with the prescription anti-depressant Celexa and mixed that, with a
handful of mixed drinks. He was reportedly so out of it, police had to stop a
field sobriety test for his own safety.

“I still feel like he’s going to
come and walk through the door,” explained Dawn Miller, who was Childress’
roommate.

Childress was on his way to work as a bus driver with Coach
America charter bus service when he lost his life. He was driving northbound on
Main when a police report says, Norton did not stop for a red light and hit
Childress’ driver side. The impact sent him flying almost 150 feet into the
eastbound lanes of Charleston.

“I don’t want to be angry. I’m very angry
though,” said Miller.

An arrest report says Norton admitted to taking
five 15 mg pills of Celexa and to drinking four to five drinks of vodka tonic at
the club.

The report says he blatantly told police, “I can’t drive home.
I’m too drunk.”

When asked what the date was Norton thought it was May
1st, when it was April 4th.

“He has the rest of his life and we have the
rest of our lives without Bob,” said Miller.

According to the report
Norton had no idea he hit another vehicle near the downtown intersection. He
reportedly told police he hit a fire hydrant and wanted to know how bad his car
was.

“This was not a thing, it was a person that somebody loved. He was
always with us. He can never replaced. He tore apart my family” said Ariell
Miller, who also lived with Childress.

On top of not knowing, what month
it was and not knowing that he had hit somebody Norton reportedly also had no
clue what street he was on at the time of the accident. A preliminary
breathalyzer test showed his alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.
Further blood tests are pending.

Childress is expected to be cremated in
the days to come. His roommates describe him as a hard-working, low-key
gentleman who was always willing to lend a helping hand to others.

Last
year, 84 people in Nevada were killed in drunk driving accidents. 61 of those
victims died in Clark County.
