Wisconsin man charged after two overdoses at Lincoln child’s birthday party | Crime and courts

A 37-year-old Milwaukee man has been jailed in Lincoln after he and another man overdosed at a child’s birthday party near Northwest Seventh Street and Bridger Road on Saturday, forcing first responders to deploy Narcan and leaving a man hospitalized for three days.

Kalvin Eichelberger is accused of supplying the cocaine the men overdosed on, which authorities suspect was mixed with fentanyl, according to Eichelberger’s arrest affidavit.

Lincoln police and rescue teams were dispatched to the party around 4:30 p.m. Saturday, where first responders deployed emergency drug overdose treatment and performed CPR on Eichelberger and a 29-year-old man.

Police found a bag containing 0.6 grams of suspected cocaine in Eichelberger’s pocket, along with a folded dollar bill with another gram of the drug, investigator Forrest Dalton said in the affidavit.

The other man, who was placed on a ventilator during his three-day stay at a local hospital, told police that Eichelberger asked him twice if he wanted cocaine and that he “did felt compelled” to accept, Dalton said.
