ALEXANDRIA, N.H. — Police say an officer in New Hampshire has been exposed to an opioid-based powder during a traffic stop and was taken to a hospital.

WMUR-TV reports the officer in Alexandria experienced some symptoms, but was expected to be OK and be released later Tuesday. Police said Narcan wasn't used on the officer.

Police said the officer pulled the car over because it was being driven erratically.

Further information was not immediately available.
