Prescription drugs are so 2003

The breaking news at the City Paper this evening is that Williamson County Sheriff Ricky Headley and pharmacist Glenn Brooks were busted for illegally filling bogus prescriptions for painkillers.

Two things jump out at me about this.

1: Prescription drugs? Wasn’t that out of fashion way before Rush was busted for it?

2: The only reason I can figure that this could have been worth Metro Police and TBI involvement is if Headley’s performance was adversely affected by his habit. So there must be some amazingly good stories out there about how messed up he was on all those strong painkillers. Way better stories than me dancing on tables at Cabana under the influence of pineapple martinis. Which is a fabrication — merely for illustrative purposes.

Any other insights?

    Since a sheriff is a state position, any investigation of a sheriff requires TBI supervision. I am certain Metro was involved so that it wouldn’t be a conflict for a Williamson County or Franklin law enforcement officer.

    And… that was a very detailed fabrication!!
