The Whitley County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy is recovering after an unknown substance from a suspect’s syringe sent him to the hospital. The deputy responded to a call about a man and woman who appeared under the influence. When he arrived, he saw a man slumped over the wheel of his car and a woman unresponsive in the passenger seat. Officials say a needle was in plain view. When the deputy picked up the needle, a brown liquid got onto his gloves. The liquid seeped through his glove and burned his hand. The deputy went ahead and woke up the couple, who were not able to pass sobriety tests. During the investigation, four small bags of heroin, a bag of meth and more needles were found. 25 year old Megan Sayne and 36 year old Patrick Kenny, both of Tennessee, were arrested and charged with possession of heroin, meth and drug paraphernalia. They were lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center. The deputy later went to a local hospital. Test results are pending to find out what caused the burns.
