FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - A family medical clinic in Booneville is closed after the arrest of the clinic's nurse practitioner on a drug charge.

Booneville police say they arrested Billy Noel on Monday at South Logan Family Practice for suspicion of illegally dispensing narcotics. Police Chief Albert Brown said Noel was released on $25,000 bond shortly after being arrested.

Noel could not be reached for comment.

A sign at the clinic said it is closed until further notice. The person who answered a phone call to the clinic hung up.
