OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City area obstetrician has been arrested on fraud complaints for allegedly prescribing abortion-inducing drugs to patients to women who were not pregnant.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced Tuesday plans to charge 62-year-old Naresh G. Patel with three counts of obtaining money under a false pretense after an investigation that involved undercover female agents going into the Outpatient Services for Women clinic in Warr Acres.

A probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court says Patel prescribed the three undercover agents abortion-inducing drugs even though they were not pregnant. A jail official said Patel was being booked early Tuesday afternoon with a $2,000 bail.

An answering service at Patel’s clinic said it was closed until Monday and could not accept messages.
