BARTOW, Fla. (AP) — A Virginia chiropractor who has been accused of supplying steroids to members of D.C.-area sports teams has been arrested.

Authorities in Florida said 50-year-old Douglas O. Nagel of Reston was arrested Tuesday morning in Virginia and charged with seven counts of conspiring to deliver a controlled substance, specifically steroids.

Last year, a Florida-based associate of Mr. Nagel’s pleaded guilty to possessing steroids with intent to sell. That man, according to an affidavit, told authorities that Mr. Nagel had been supplying steroids to members with Washington Nationals and Washington Capitals.

Mr. Nagel’s wife, Jan, said in a brief phone interview that her husband did not sell steroids. She denied that he ever treated members of the Nationals and declined to comment on whether he had treated any Capitals.
