Police: ‘Survivor’ champ bit cop after revival with Narcan

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Police say a winner of the reality TV show “Survivor” bit a police officer after being found unconscious in her parked car and revived with the opioid overdose antidote Narcan.

A police report obtained by the Observer-Reporter newspaper says 37-year-old Jenna Morasca became combative during the Jan. 25 incident near a McDonalds restaurant 30 miles (48 kilometres) south of Pittsburgh. It says she bit the officer on a forearm while inside an ambulance.

Police in South Strabane Township say they are investigating it as a case of suspected driving under the influence.

Morasca was the $1 million winner of “Survivor: The Amazon” in 2003 and later participated in a season of “The Amazing Race.” She didn’t return messages left at phone numbers linked to her.

Her license plate reads “AMAZON.”

TV station WPXI first reported the incident.
