A 13-year-old California college student was arrested after bringing fentanyl to school, which caused a school supervisor to overdose.
The Bakersfield Police Department responded to Chipman Junior High School Friday after the school reported a student in possession of approximately 150 fentanyl pills disguised as Percocet, according to KGET.
The pills were discovered after a search was conducted on the student during an unrelated altercation with another student, which led to a school supervisor discovering the pills and inadvertently overdosing, according to GDP. Police say the supervisor did not ingest the pills, but opened the pill bottle to check it and was exposed as they posed an “inhalation hazard”.

A Kern High School police officer administered Narcan to the supervisor, who was later transferred to a local hospital for treatment and was listed in stable condition.
Police said the student in possession of the fentanyl pills disguised as Percocet also had about $300 on him, although they could not immediately tell if any of the pills had been sold or given to another student. The investigation was still ongoing.
The 13-year-old student was charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of sale and was taken to a juvenile hall following the arrest.
