JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A western Pennsylvania police chief has been placed on paid leave in the wake of an officer's on-duty drug overdose in the police station.

Johnstown solicitor Carl Beard says Friday that Chief Craig Foust's leave is a "precautionary measure for everybody's protection." The city planned a news conference later in the afternoon.

The officer, whose name hasn't been released, has also already been placed on paid administrative leave following the Sept. 18 overdose. Narcan, a drug used to reverse overdoses of heroin and other opioids, was used to revive the officer.
