Doctor accused of running pill mill seeking release

GRETNA, LA (WVUE) - A doctor accused of running a pill mill on the West Bank is expected to ask to be released on bail.

A hearing will take place Wednesday morning for Wayne Celestine.

Recent court filings show he thinks Drug Enforcement Administration agents disregarded his rights when they seized bank accounts earlier this year.

Celestine is accused of making millions of dollars from a pill mill operation.

Investigators say Celestine is a flight risk.
