The West Virginia State Police along with the Wood County Sheriff's Department, and the FBI arrested an emergency room doctor on drug charges following an investigation involving prescription pills.

Police arrested Robert Timothy Hogan II, 32, from Coolville, OH, after police say he allegedly wrote out multiple prescriptions for Oxycontin without performing physical exams while working as an emergency room doctor at Camden Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg, WV.

Police also say Hogan allegedly required patients to give him half of the pills in exchange for the prescriptions.

Hogan has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance, and is currently lodged in the North Central Regional Jail, on a $250,000 bond.
