LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A woman was escorted into the Clark County Jail by her former boss.
Sheriff Jamey Noel walked 62-year-old Denise Brooks into the jail on Monday afternoon.
Brooks served as the jail's nurse practitioner for eight years, but she is now charged with obtaining a prescription by fraud and theft.
"It's always tough when we investigate one of our employees. We received an anonymous complaint on this and our detective division handled it and upon their investigation they obviously found criminal charges that needed to be filed on one of our employees," said Detective Scottie Maples.
Police will not say exactly what Brooks was doing, citing the investigation is ongoing.
