Alarmed officers immediately called for an ambulance to help the stricken Tuck.
By the time paramedics arrived, he had regained consciousness and was taken to hospital.

Drug paraphernalia, including a pipe, was also located in the car.
Police said he would not be pursued over the incident.
Hawthorn would not confirm the identity of the player but did release a statement from chief executive Stuart Fox.
”The player was discharged from hospital into the care of his family following an incident in the early hours of Saturday morning,” he said.
“The Club and the players family will continue to support the player to ensure his personal health and welfare is secured.
“The Club has notified the AFL of the incident and will keep them fully informed if any more information comes to light.”
