JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

A Jackson police officer was taken to the hospital after being exposed to a controlled substance during an arrest.

It happened Wednesday morning while police were responding to a suspicious person call on Santa Clair Street in south Jackson.

Two people were taken into custody.  One of them had a warrant in another jurisdiction, JPD said.

The officer was taken to the hospital as a precaution after, possibly, coming into contact with an unknown drug.

The officer is expected to be okay.
