Feds Raid Ga. Pain Clinic Again

Federal agents raided a pain clinic in Tucker Tuesday -- the second time in three weeks -- and arrested a doctor.

Officials said Dr. Michael Assevero was charged with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone during the raid at Southern Health Management. The clinic owner and a worker were arrested during a raid June 14.

Federal drug enforcement agent Chuvalo Truesdell said the place reminded him of a crack house from the 1980s.

Owner Jeffrey Gonzalez said the pain clinic is not a pill mill.
