§ 10012. Law enforcement officers; duty upon finding unconscious persons
It shall be the duty of all law enforcement officers in this State to make a diligent effort to determine if any person they may find in a semi-conscious or unconscious condition is an epileptic or diabetic or a person who is suffering from any other type of illness which would cause semi-consciousness or unconsciousness, before such person may be charged with a crime. If any law enforcement officer shall determine that such a person is actually suffering from an affliction which would cause semi-consciousness or unconsciousness, it shall be his duty to notify such person's physician immediately or to have such person immediately transported to a physician or to some facility where the services of a physician are available.
