Memphis Fire crews revived the husband and wife, who were both then taken to the hospital in noncritical condition.

Police found the woman, Carla Hiers, had a warrant out for her arrest, so they took her into custody.

"What they were doing was children things. It was a spectacle. It made me laugh. They can help themselves," said Garner. "I know for a fact all the kids are on social media, and when kids see that video, you know what they are going to say? I don't want to look stupid like that I don't want to do those drugs."
