IOWA CITY — An Iowa City man faces numerous drug charges after police responded to his apartment for a possible overdose.

According to Iowa City police criminal complaints, officers were called to 332 S. Linn St., Apt. 310, at 2:24 a.m. Sunday for a possible heroin overdose. Police said 22-year-old Collin M. Scott lives at that address, but it is not clear from the criminal complaint if he or someone else in the apartment had overdosed.
