The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an overdose victim at Eastern View High School Friday morning. Culpeper Sheriff’s School Resource Officer Chris Williams had requested an ambulance for an unresponsive 17-year-old female student. School staff quickly administered Narcan, followed with CPR.
