HYDE PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The five LAPD officers taken to the hospital after being exposed to meth last week while on the job were not suffering side effects caused by the meth, the police department told Eyewitness News on Tuesday.
LAPD initially told us on Friday the officers were in distress, but now say that was not the case. This all stemmed from a domestic disturbance call in Hyde Park.
A spokesperson for the department now says the officers were evaluated at the hospital only as a precaution after the drug was recovered at the scene.
It should be noted the risk of becoming sick from methamphetamine without smoking or directly ingesting the drug is generally considered to be low.
