LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some of the packages Fed-Ex ships are getting the company in hot water.

The shipping giant has been indicted for knowingly shipping prescription drugs to dealers and addicts from illegal online pharmacies. Documents were filed in federal court Friday.

Fed-Ex says it's not guilty.

Prosecutors say this is the result of a 9-year investigation into two Internet pharmacies. If convicted, Fed-Ex could face more than $820 million in fines and penalties.
