OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) -- Disturbing allegations tonight, about partying paramedics who may have crossed the line. The possibility of town employees administering drugs to each other has a lot of folks asking questions.

These allegations were first handled by the Town of Oak Island as a personnel matter. They were quickly cleared after an internal investigation was completed, but on September 29, Oak Island Police launched a criminal investigation.

According to a police report, a party got out of hand. The report says drugs were delivered at a party hosted by an Oak Island Fire and Rescue employee. Oak Island Town Manager Jerry Walters says that employee is Shawn Neighbors.

The report says the drug Phenergan was administered to two women through an IV at the party, which was attended by several firemen and possibly law enforcement officers. Investigators won't say which agencies those firemen and officers work for.

Neighbors lives at a house on Northeast 36th Street on Oak Island, where his neighbors say they remember a large party taking place at his home in August. We knocked on Neighbors's door, but no one answered despite the fact there were two cars in the driveway.

The town manager told WWAY today that it was determined that Oak Island employees neither gave the IV nor received the drugs at the party.

Neighbors is still an employee at Oak Island Fire and Rescue.
