SALEM, AR (KAIT) – A business owner helped police take a man into custody who is accused of forging a prescription.

According to Salem police, Nicholas Weeks of Henderson attempted to get a narcotic drug with a phony prescription on March 12 at Guffey's Pharmacy. As Salem Police Chief Shad Overman made contact with Weeks, police say he fought with the chief and tried to leave the store. The pharmacy owner then helped in subduing Weeks until more officers arrived.

Police say during the struggle, Weeks tried to eat the forged prescription in an attempt to destroy the evidence.

Weeks was charged with two counts of providing false information or prescription to obtain a controlled substance. He was also charged with tampering with physical evidence, aggravated assault and resisting arrest.

Weeks was also wanted out of Baxter County for probation violation.

Bond was set at $100,000 and he is currently in the Fulton County Jail.
