The officer was treated at East Liverpool City Hospital and was given multiple doses of Narcan. I don't believe there is anything stating that it was fentanyl but that is the only thing that it could have been.

Thanks so much for your help with this request! I really appreciate it. Just one question: as stated in the request, I would like to know whether or not this incident was ever linked (by medical examination) to fentanyl exposure. Your response documents don't answer that question. Would you be able to answer that question for me with a yes or no response? Thanks again for your help!
