The incident occurred at about 1:15 a.m. Friday when Officer Lou Denet came across an unconscious man on the sidewalk in front of the Field Library at 4 Nelson Avenue.
"It was determined that the subject, who was now identified as 38-year-old Jermaine Shelton of Yonkers, was not suffering from a medical condition but was instead passed out from being under the influence of alcohol and narcotics," authorities said in a statement. "Mr. Shelton was found in to be in possession of powder cocaine at the time of the incident."
Officials charged Shelton with two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felonies. After being taken to Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor for treatment and released, he was transported back to police headquarters. He was held there pending arraignment.
Officer Michael Agovino assisted Denet in his investigation.
