East Liverpool officer recovers from drug poisoning, has warning for dealers


It happened last Friday night after East Liverpool officers made a traffic stop and detained two men they believe were involved in a drug transaction.

Police found white powder on the vehicle seat and mashed into the carpet on the floor of the automobile.

WKBN-TV reports that after Green conducted the search and returned to the police station, a fellow officer noticed Green had white power on his shirt.

An East Liverpool (Ohio) patrolman was almost killed just a few days ago when his skin came in contact with fentanyl, a deadly narcotic stronger than heroin.

Captain Wright said Sunday Green was in good shape. They administered Narcan and transported Green to the hospital where three additional doses were given to revive him.

Just moments later, Patrolman Green reportedly started feeling sick and dizzy. Authorities blocked the vehicle in, so that Buckle and his passenger, 24-year-old Cortez Collins, could not flee the scene.

"They called an ambulance for him and the ambulance responded for him", Wright told WKBN.

Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'
On Saturday's "SNL" we saw how comedy can humanize our view of a person, as McCarthy turned Spicer into a sympathetic character. The show aimed high by having McCarthy cruise the streets of Manhattan on a rolling podium in search of Donald Trump.

An officer caught Green before he fell to the floor.

"We're trying to make the public aware of the ever-increasing strength of the drugs found on the street, and to be aware that if they come in contact with someone who is overdosing to take precautions", said Dan Suffoletto, a spokesman for Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County.

"[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", Green told the Morning Journal newspaper. Just that tiny puff of powder that becomes airborne when closing a plastic bag containing the drug is enough to cause a full-grown adult to overdose if it is accidentally inhaled.

Though Green's experience was life-threatening, it could have been far worse, Lane said. The drug was actually the synthetic opioid, fentanyl, which is 50 times stronger than heroin. Going forward, the Chief said his officers will no longer be testing drugs at crime scenes because the health risks are too great.

Green's frightening drug accident has led to a change of policy at the police department.

Buckel and Cortez were both charged with tampering with evidence and remained in custody at the Columbiana County Jail Monday, online records show.

The epidemic of heroin and opioid addiction sweeping the nation is becoming increasingly deadly, fueled by the apparent rise in the illegal use of the powerful painkiller fentanyl.
