A Medical University of South Carolina psychiatrist has been arrested after a raid at an adult entertainment club. MUSC Dr. Alberto Santos Jr. faces prescription drug charges that include illegal possession of a controlled substance and theft of a controlled substance.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports Santos was arrested after a raid at the Silk Stockings by Amber club in North Charleston. On Tuesday, police raided the club and arrested two women on prostitution charges, when they arrested Santos. Authorities searched Santos’ car and found more than 300 tablets that included anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and anti-seizure medication.
During his bond hearing, Santos said he’s done nothing wrong and the medicine found was meant for clinics. It’s still unclear if Santos has a lawyer.
