Jupiter Dentist Wrote Fake Oxycodone Prescriptions for Patients and Ingested Them, According to Cops
|Christopher Petterson (Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office)|
Christopher Petterson, a 67-year-old Jupiter dentist, is facing drug trafficking and fraud charges for writing up fake prescriptions under his patients' names and then filling them at pharmacies for himself, according to police.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says things began to look a tad shady when the office manager of a dental spa where Peterson used to practice got a call from a Walgreen's about a prescription he had allegedly written that seemed fishy.
The office manager contacted the patient whose name was on the prescription, but was told that Petterson had not written him any prescriptions.
