Findlay Man Charged In Case Involving Accidental Officer Overdose

7/28/17 – 7:09 A.M.

The Seneca County grand jury has indicted a Findlay man accused of exposing a police officer to fentanyl last month. The Review-Times reports 27-year-old Logan Parrish faces a count of aggravated trafficking in drugs. Officer Cory Brian was searching Parish’s car when he came into contact with fentanyl. The powerful painkiller caused Brian to suffer from dizziness and nausea within minutes.

Police Chief Keith Loreno says Brian was wearing protective gear during the search. He believes the heat and humidity of the day caused the drug to absorb through the officer’s skin.

Parrish faces up to 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 if a jury convicts him.
