INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (Jan. 14, 2015)-- A doctor was arrested Wednesday at his north side practice for allegedly distributing a weight loss pill without a license.
Dr. Pynkerton Dion Newton faces five charges of obtaining and dealing a controlled substance. The drug in question is Phentermine.
DEA agents raided Newton's chiropractic practice on Nov. 17, but charges were dropped days later.
During the November raid, DEA agents recovered two bottles of Phentermine.
Court documents show that Newton admitted that he had obtained and dispensed phentermine during a recorded DEA interview.
"I know this doesn't mean it's over, it just means that they decided not to prosecute," said Newton.
His hunch was correct, as federal agents returned Wednesday.
"I clearly didn't do it," Newton said in the interview.
Newton denied the accusations of distributing Phentermine in November.
Bond was set at $15,000.
