LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have accused a Lexington social worker of using a child as a bargaining tool for discounts on illegal drugs.


Officers arrested Chad Albert Buckley on Tuesday and charged him with conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, official misconduct and bribery of a public servant.


According to police, Buckley made a deal with a child's parent to pay $30 cash, a $25 gift card and allow a home visit in exchange for four Oxycontin pills.


It wasn't immediately clear whether Buckley, who works for the Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services, had an attorney.
