A report from Dec. 17, 2016 shows police said they found Wylie with a needle, syringe, heroin and crack cocaine during a traffic stop of Wylie’s girlfriend, Tina Davis.
Davis, 37, was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of drunk driving, possession of drugs and physical control and was booked into the jail.
On March 28, Wylie and a roofing business co-worker showed up from a repair shop next door and were banging on the garage door at a fire station along with Nathan, who was unconscious, according to the police report. The co-worker said Wylie was on drugs and “the boy got into his stuff.”
The report said medics administered four milligrams of Narcan without any response before he was taken to Miami Valley Hospital because he was not breathing. An officer served Wylie an indictment warrant and added a child endangering charge.

Dayton police said Monday they were interviewing witnesses to determine how Nathan got access to drugs. “We don’t know what kind of drugs,” Dayton police Lt. Andrew Booher said. “We’re still waiting for a (toxicology) report from the coroner’s office.”
Booher said one child was removed from the house as a precaution and that charges were likely after consultation with the prosecutor’s office.
The February 2016 report indicates Dayton police arrested Wylie and Davis for child endangerment and possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia.
A Dayton officer wrote that he looked around the residence for proof that the photo of possible drugs was real. When the officer saw a knife that also was in the picture, he found in a dresser drawer two crack pipes and a capped needle.
“After finding these items, Tina told me to stop searching and I did,” the officer wrote, later adding that a child endanger packet was formed.

Davis was found guilty of misdemeanor child endangering and given a suspended 180-day jail sentence and ordered to undergo a life skills class. Her probation later was revoked, according to court records.
The December 2016 report shows Wylie was arrested after police stopped a car driven by Davis near South Broadway Street and West Stewart Street, an area “known for high drug activity,” according to the officer.
The report said Nathan was in the vehicle when officers asked Wylie to exit the vehicle. Wylie told officers before a pat-down that in his pocket he had a “rig” — a hypodermic needle and syringe.
Officers also seized more needles, a green bottle with what appeared to be heroin caps and a cigarette box of what Wylie said was crack cocaine. An officer wrote that, “Wylie stated that his son Nathan was allowed to stay with Tina and she agreed to it.”
Wylie’s December case is pending in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court. Municipal court records show Wylie has multiple misdemeanor drug cases for drug abuse, marijuana possession and drug abuse in a park dating back to 1998.
