An officer with the Irvine (KY) Police Department was given Narcan after coming into contact with a potentially deadly narcotic during a drug arrest over the weekend.

According to WKYT-TV, Irvine Police Captain John Sturniolo was given a dose of the life-saving medicine after making the arrest of 39-year-old Josh Riddell on suspicion of trafficking and possession of heroin.

Riddell also faces a charge of wanton endangerment.

"Drugs these days are constantly more concentrated," said Trooper Robert Purdy of the Kentucky State Police.
