About an hour later, Green passed out and was suffering from an overdose of the drug fentanyl.

WKBN reports Officer Chris Green from East Liverpool was part of a group of officers that stopped a vehicle on Friday night after they witnessed what they thought was a drug transaction.

The drivers tried to get rid of the evidence, but left white powder all over the vehicle.

Police say Patrolman Chris Green followed proper procedure for handling drugs by using latex gloves and a mask while conducting the search.

Fentanyl can be absorbed into the body merely through skin contact. It took four doses of Narcan to revive him.

"I never dreamed something so risky would be such a minute powder", Green said. Buckel will also likely be charged with felonious assault in connection with Green's exposure to the drug.

"I started talking weird".

The driver of the vehicle Justin Buckle and his passenger Cortez Collins had been arrested and are facing charges of tampering with evidence.

Windows Server 2016 will also receive a feature update aligned with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update . And not just that, Windows 10 on ARM will also provide you with full support for running x86 Win32 apps.

Fentanyl, which has been linked to hundreds of overdosing deaths across the country recently, particularly in OH, poses an enhanced threat because simply touching the powder can put a first responder at risk, officials said. "Or he has kids and they come up and give him a hug it could kill them", he said.

An officer caught Green before he fell to the floor.

"I remember seeing my chief, and colleagues, and my fiancée was balling her eyes out and I knew something bad just happened", Green said.

"God was surely looking over me", Green said.

Green says he is grateful he never made it home since he could have exposed his dogs, fiancee, and family to the deadly substance. The drug's high potency makes it especially risky, with a high risk for overdose, particularly if a user is unaware the drug they are taking has been mixed with fentanyl.

"[My head] feels like it's in a vice grip, my heart feels like I got kicked in the chest and my stomach feels like I have a case of the flu, " Green told the Journal.

In response, departments are urging officers to assume that numerous drugs they encounter include the opioid, regardless of what a suspect may say. Officers found the suspects trying to destroy the drug evidence.

The powder was identified as fentanyl, an opioid 50 times more powerful than heroin. But Green's accidental overdose is another example of Ohio's opiate epidemic and its dangers for police, as well as the public at large.
