A federal grand jury has indicted a Children's Hospital doctor on 655 counts of prescription fraud.
The indictment alleges Dr. Louis C. Hampers obtained thousands of pain and sleeping pills using fake names.
Hampers is a specialist in pediatric emergency medicine at Children's and a faculty member at the University of Colorado. He was arrested by federal agents Tuesday in Virginia.
Dr. Joan Bothner, the chief medical officer at Children's, said Hampers last provided care in the emergency department in March.
