Default Doctor in southwest Arkansas arrested on drug charges

FORT SMITH -- A Texarkana physician is facing numerous charges after authorities said he overprescribed controlled substances.

Duane Kees, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Dr. Lonnie Joseph Parker was arrested Tuesday morning in Texarkana on federal charges. A federal grand jury indicted Parker on nine counts of prescribing without a legitimate medical purpose outside the scope of a professional practice, a news release stated. The dates of these nine counts, according to the indictment, range from July 21, 2018, to March 8.

Kees said the investigation started in November 2018, when the Drug Enforcement Administration received complaints from law enforcement officials that Parker was operating a pill mill under the name Primary Care Specialists at 502 E. 24th St. in Texarkana.
