Addicted Doc –
July 15, 2020 – Hughes, who works at Nebraska Foot and Ankle, has written 63 prescriptions for 4,300 pills for Digilio over the last two years, which drug investigators believe was overprescribing, the sheriff said.
After reviewing subpoenaed documents, surveillance and information from confidential informants, investigators allege Hughes wrote the prescriptions to Digilio, who would fill them at a pharmacy before selling the doctor the majority of pills, Wagner said. On Tuesday, deputies watched Digilio pick up a prescription at a local pharmacy, then drive to meet up with Hughes in south Lincoln. Each was arrested during separate traffic stops, Wagner said.
