Patrolman Chris Green immediately entered the car to stop the suspect from destroying the evidence. Police found several piles of white powder in the car. The suspect first said it was cocaine, then later admitted it was fentanyl.
After the arrest, Patrolman Green started feeling sick and dizzy. Police learned that during his struggle with the suspect, the fentanyl had gotten onto his skin. Medics gave the officer Narcan, the life-saving overdose reversal drug.
Green is expected to make a full recovery! Both of the men in the car are initially charged with tampering with evidence. More charges are expected to be filed![mks_button size=”large” title=”Source: WPXI ” style=”rounded” url=”http://www.wpxi.com/news/top-stories/police-officer-accidentally-overdoses-during-traffic-stop/522632155″ target=”_blank” bg_color=”#1e73be” txt_color=”#FFFFFF” icon=”fa-newspaper-o” icon_type=”fa” nofollow=”0″]
