Palestine Doctor Indicted

A Palestine doctor is behind bars charged with medicaid fraud. An Anderson County grand jury indicted Dr. Robert J. Byrnes with felony identity theft and possession of dangerous drugs.

Byrnes is accused of forging the name of a former acquaintance to illegally obtain prescription drugs for himself. Last month, Byrnes's federal license to prescribe narcotics was suspended by the D-E-A.
