A doctor has been arrested following a joint investigation spearheaded by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
"Earlier this month, CNT, DEA, and other state and federal agencies conducted an investigation at Consultants in Pain Medicine located at 2453 Highway 17, Richmond Hill, Georgia," CNT reports.
"During the investigation, agents located paperwork that suggested Doctor Amy Pearson was unlawfully operating the clinic by having an expired pain management license. As the investigation furthered, agents determined the license was expired by more than one year."
CNT arrested Dr. Pearson on October 23, 2018, at her residence without incident. Dr. Pearson was charged with Operating a Pain Management Clinic without a License, which is a felony in the state of Georgia. Dr. Pearson was booked into the Bryan County Detention Center and is currently out on bond. The pain management clinic is currently closed pending further investigation.
