Police officer accidentally overdoses during traffic stop

You can absorb it through contact with your skin, but the severity of the overdose made Hoyt suspect Green inhaled it.

According to a police report, officers had corralled a blue Monte Carlo at West 8th Street after observing the driver, 25-year-old Justin Buckle, perform what was believed to have been a drug transaction.

During the stop, the driver of the vehicle allegedly tried to use his foot to rub a white powder into the carpet.

When they returned to the station, an officer noticed that Green had white powder on his shirt.

Green was told he had absorbed the drug through his skin.

Paramedics gave Green a dose of Narcan, an opioid antidote, to reverse the effects and rushed him to a hospital.

"I instinctively reached around to pull the tail of my shirt to the front, by then it was already too late", said Green.

It's one of the reasons the agency calls the drug "a significant danger to public health workers, first responders and law enforcement personnel that may unwittingly come into contact with it".

Moments later, Green wasn't feeling well. It was at this time that Buckle and his passenger attempted to destroy the drug evidence by emptying the packet containing the fentanyl drug onto the carpet of the auto floor.

One of DeWine's alerts was for the drug carfentanil, used to sedate elephants and other large animals. East Liverpool Police said they expect more charges to be filed.

The powdered narcotics had spread throughout the suspect's auto, and apparently on officer Green as well.

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 cause of Green's condition was overdose of fentanyl, which is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine. These people have no regard for anybody, not themselves, not the police, not their kids, " Lane said.

Wright added that the incident is an example of how the drug epidemic has forced officers to change aspects of their jobs. The DEA went on to advise that masks be worn in case the drug becomes airborne, while federal authorities have called for confiscated materials to be sent straight to secure labs instead of being field tested.
