A suspected North Bellmore drug addict dragged an unconscious woman down the stairs of his house, loaded her into his car and drove her around as she overdosed, according to police.

A tipster's call that "a woman, possibly deceased" was dragged and "put into a 2010 Volkswagen" led to a traffic stop about 11:30 p.m. Friday, Nassau police said Saturday.

Adam S. Geier, 31, was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies.

Police said Xanax and oxycodone pills, many in Geier's lap, were among the drugs found during the stop; in the front passenger seat, the woman was unconscious and overdosing.

Geier is charged with the drug-sale felony because he admitted giving three of the pills to another person, according to court papers.

Geier, appearing haggard at his first court appearance Saturday, wasn't required to enter a plea. Judge Martin Massell of District Court in Hempstead ordered him held on $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond bail. Prosecutor Jhounelle Cunningham had requested $60,000.

His next court date in the case is Tuesday. Court-appointed defense attorney Yolanda Guerra said Geier has been in drug treatment and was due to start a new program next week.

Geier is a lifelong Nassau resident who lives with his family, Guerra said. She said he's worked "on and off" on the golf staff of a Cold Spring Harbor country club and has a master's degree in exercise science.

The 43-year-old female passenger was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and discharged.
