False Imprisonment For Legitimate Prescription

This lady’s arrest due to a CVS employee’s stupidity, accusatory mind-set, arrogance and self-righteousness is not a shock to me.

Arresting officer swears this particular pharmacist has never made a mistake in accusing people of forging prescriptions…but…it seems like there’s a first time for everything.

The pharmacy called Lenhart to ask her exactly what time she would be in pick up her prescription. She thought it was odd, but told the pharmacy what time she would be there.
Still on crutches and unable to drive, a friend of Lenhart’s, drove her to a CVS Pharmacy in Oak Cliff.
She wasn’t able to pick up her prescription because a police officer arrived to pick her up.
“He was like ‘we need to go outside,’” she said. “I was on crutches and I had a permanent IV line in my arm. I had a big leg brace. I asked him if it was necessary and he said yes and he rather policingly escorted me out the front door and into the back of a waiting patrol car.”

The police eventually dropped the charges after speaking with Lenhart’s doctor, who confirmed the legitimacy of the prescription but said he never received a call from CVS. A CVS representative told CBS that the company is “investigating how this unfortunate incident occurred and we are working to resolve the matter with Ms. Lenhart.”

In the meantime, Lenhart is suing CVS Pharmacy for false imprisonment and defamation. “I don’t want somebody who I love to go in there and get arrested,” Lenhart said to CBS.
