OH officer overdoses when suspect's drugs get on him

An Ohio police officer almost died after coming into contact with the deadly opioid fentanyl while making a drugs bust on Friday night (12 May).

East Liverpool patrolman Chris Green pulled over 25-year-old Justin Buckle's vehicle Friday after he spotted someone in the auto perform a drug transaction, police told reporters at WKBN.

Back at the station, a fellow police officer noticed white powder on Green's shirt. He was then transported to East Liverpool City Hospital where he was given three additional doses of Narcan.

In fact, it is so potent it has been described as a "weapon of mass destruction", as it can be absorbed into the body merely through skin contact.

This happening after he helped arrest two men Justin Buckle, of East Liverpool, and Cortez Collins, of Cleveland, driving in this vehicle. He said that this incident was an example of how police are forced to change the way they do their jobs do to this scary drug epidemic.

North Korea threatens 'CIA terrorists', claims US, South Korea behind assassination plot
Those sanctions - and that tension - could get even tighter if North Korea is added to the US list of state sponsors of terror. North Korea frequently lambasts the United States and South Korea, but its accusation Friday was unusual in its detail.

He says fentanyl and carfentanyl are so deadly that police officers are now taking more precautions when responding to these calls.

Lane said he is thankful Green was at the police station when he became ill.

Police believe the powder was the powerful opioid fentanyl, which is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. "He's 225 pounds, all the muscle, and it overtook him just like that", Captain East Liverpool Police Patrick Wright said.

"I could hear them talking, but I couldn't respond".

So, why did it take four doses of the antidote to revive Green? "After further pressing, it was advised that the powder was fentanyl", the report states.

Stoffel Vandoorne: "I've definitely had one of my best Fridays so far". "We've been underperforming in the first four races". We've given him a great environment, he really enjoys it here [but] we've got to give him a winning auto .

"We changed our procedures to where we used to field test-drugs", Wright said.

Synan says he warns his officers every day about the risk and the possibility they could be exposed to a deadly drug.

Wright says, instinctively, 'without thinking, ' Green brushed off the smudge with his bare hand.

Green told the Morning Journal that drugs "are not only killing the people willing to shove it into their own veins, now they're killing people like me and my family". The confined space of the vehicle is what Hoyt thinks likely lead to the OH officer's overdose. Both men are charged with tampering with evidence.

Green was treated and released Friday, and when contacted Saturday said he was still feeling the effects of the substance.
