Man arrested outside of controversial pain clinic

JEFFERSONVILLE. IN (WAVE) – A man leaving a pain clinic that has come under heavy controversy in Jeffersonville was arrested after police found a weapon in his car.

Police said William Baker admitted to having a weapon when he backed into a car Friday in the parking lot of the Clark County Wellness Center.

Several neighbors have been protesting the clinic, located in the 500 block of East Maple Street, since it recently opened its doors on July 27.

Those who have expressed concern have told WAVE 3 the neighborhood is a quiet residential area and they do not understand why the business chose that location.

On Wednesday August 1, Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore told WAVE 3's Maira Ansari the clinic employees are, "Writing prescriptions and customers are going in and paying cash."

A protest against the center is being planned by resident Tony Burns to take place on August 8.

According to a police report Baker is prescribed to Oxycodone and listed he has heart, back and knee problems.

Baker did not have a permit for the weapon. He is charged with possession of a handgun without a permit. Baker was booked in Clark County on a $5,000 bond.
