State police are investigating an altercation between a firefighter and a trooper that resulted in the firefighter briefly being placed in handcuffs.
Troopers were dispatched at 7:50 p.m. Sunday to Interstate 83 southbound at mile marker 16 in York County for a report of a one-vehicle crash with entrapment.
Troopers arrived to find a man inside a vehicle who was unable to open the door as he was showing signs of a suspected overdose, state police said. Troopers then had to break out a passenger-side window to enter the vehicle and administer Narcan to the man.
At that time, York Township firefighters arrived and one of them became upset that troopers broke the glass to help the man, the release states.
The firefighter yelled at the troopers and one of them ordered the firefighter to leave the scene, which he refused to do, according to police.
A trooper tried to escort the firefighter away when the firefighter pushed the trooper, the release states. The firefighter was taken to the ground in handcuffs, but was released from custody at the scene, police said.
