A Rutherford County jail inmate had to be transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital on Wednesday morning.
As the nurse continued to observe the inmate, his condition seemed to linger. A second dose of NARCAN was administered prior to the arrival of paramedics.
An ambulance transported the inmate to the hospital around 7:15, Wednesday morning. After recovering during a short stay in the ER, he was transported back to the local jail to arrange bond.
