LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville doctor is facing 58 charges after police said she was writing fake prescriptions and trafficking a controlled substance.

Louisville Metro police said Doctor Kari Nally, a family practice doctor in Jefferson County, was using her DEA license to write illegal prescriptions for pills such as Hydrocodone, Oxycodone and Xanax.

In exchange, police said she would keep a portion of the pills for herself.

Dr. Nally was arrested at her home in Mount Washington on Friday.

Four other women were named in the indictment.
