An Iowa police officer was carrying out a traffic stop over the weekend when he was exposed to an unknown substance suspected of being fentanyl, authorities said Monday.

The situation unfolded after the Fort Dodge police officer pulled over a woman Sunday evening, the department said in a news release on Facebook.

The woman, identified as 28-year-old Kayla Potter, provided "false identification information" to the cop and she was ultimately taken into custody for the move as well as for driving on a suspended license, according to the news release.

"While on scene of the traffic contact, the officer handled an unknown substance before transporting the female to the Law Enforcement Center (LEC)," police said. "While transporting the female, the officer began feeling dizzy and lightheaded."
