Doctor who worked at clinic arrested
SEMINOLE - A doctor who worked at a clinic at the center of a criminal investigation was arrested Friday on four counts of practicing medicine without a license.
Ty Anderson, 41, had his license suspended in June as part of the Sheriff's Office investigation into the Doctors Urgent Care Clinic at 4900 33rd Ave. N in St. Petersburg. Authorities say the clinic dispensed painkillers and other narcotics to patients who didn't need them.
The Sheriff's Office has made several other arrests as part of its investigation and has identified one clinic patient who authorities say overdosed on drugs that he obtained with prescriptions from the clinic.
2-year-old dies after falling into pool
TAMPA - A toddler drowned Thursday evening after she crawled through a dog door at her family's South Tampa home and fell into a swimming pool, police say.
Bailey Carter, 2, had been asleep in the living room of the home at 4726 W Wyoming Ave., police say. The girl's 5-year-old brother was watching television with her, and Bailey's mother, Ailsa Rodriguez, 26, was in another room. When Rodriguez came into the living room to check on Bailey, the toddler was gone.
After searching the home, the family found Bailey floating in the pool just after 8:30 p.m. Police officers performed CPR and tried to revive Bailey. She died that evening at Tampa General Hospital.
