An inmate has overdosed at the Louisville Metro Detention Center on the booking floor, according to Fraternal Order of the Police President Dan Johnson.
Narcan was administered to the inmate who was then taken to the hospital where he is expected to be OK, according to Johnson.
In a completely separate incident, a corrections officer was also taken to the hospital to be checked out after a possible drug exposure, said Johnson.
The officer was doing a dorm search and found drugs, suspected to be fentanyl.
These two incidents come just a day after an inmate died while in the LMDC’s custody and less than two days after three inmates were hospitalized for drug overdoses before being taken into the LMDC’s custody.
