Former NBA point guard Delonte West suffered a medical emergency as he was attempting to evade Virginia police trying to serve him a warrant early Thursday, according to a report. He reportedly collapsed and was discovered by officers, hospitalized, and later arrested on misdemeanor charges of violating the conditions of his release and resisting arrest.

West, 40, “took off” as officers with the Fairfax County Police Department approached him, according to TMZ Sports. The tabloid reported that officers pursued him on foot, losing sight of him briefly, only to find him “unresponsive” shortly after.

“Narcan was administered by officers,” the department told TMZ in a statement, “but [it] did not have the desired effect. He was transported to a local hospital and Narcan was administered again, which yielded the desired effect. West was released from the hospital and transported to the [Fairfax County Detention Center].”

He remained in custody as of Thursday afternoon, according to online records. He is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Friday morning.
