LA GRANGE, KY (WAVE) – A Prospect doctor who lives in Oldham County is facing charges after police say he called them saying people were inside his home.

According to Oldham County Police, Dr. Alan Barry Klein called them on March 7 around 5:40 p.m. When they arrived, the arrest report states Klein was erratic and paranoid with two guns in his two front jacket pockets.    

During the search for intruders, police say they found a dinner plate with two credit cards and cocaine-like substances on it. Beside the plate on the bed was a straw with the substance. In the bathroom officers said they found another plate with a toilet paper roll and cocaine-like substance and in one of the gun holders, another bag of the cocaine-like substance.

As they went into the kitchen police said they found a bottle of hydrocodone pills prescribed to someone else. Officers also stated they noticed a shell casing from one of the guns. When they asked him about it Klein told them he fired a round into his own floor to scare off the intruders.

Upon the search no one was found in the home and there was no evidence of forced entry.

Police arrested Klein, charging him with public intoxication involving a controlled substance, possession of controlled substance (cocaine), possession of drug paraphernalia, wanton endangerment, tampering with physical evidence and two counts of possession of controlled substance, drug unspecified.

The citation said when Klein exited the police car at the Oldham County Jail they found two hydrocodone pills, one in the floor of the car and one in the seat. The pills were the same as the ones found in his kitchen.

In court Wednesday defense attorney Maury Kommor entered a plea of not guilty for him. Kommor said they are waiting on the lab results to come back and feel confident he will be cleared of all seven charges.

"The case was passed three months and in between now and three months we'll be speaking with the various authorities and trying to put all this behind us," said Kommor.   

Klein is still practicing at his office on US Highway 42, while the medical board is investigating. His next court hearing will be in June.
