D.A.'s Wife Questioned About Fake Prescription

From Times Wire Reports

The wife of Kern County Dist. Atty. Ed Jagels was detained by police after allegedly trying to fill a bogus prescription for narcotics.

Bryanna Jagels, 32, was taken into custody Wednesday night after a pharmacist called police to investigate what appeared to be a forged prescription, Police Chief Eric Matlock told the Bakersfield Californian.

She was taken to police headquarters and was questioned before being released, Matlock said. She was not arrested and no charges were filed.

Jagels told the newspaper he knew his wife had become addicted to painkillers after injuring her back years ago while pulling a baby carriage out of the car trunk.

Jagels said his wife had undergone treatment and he thought she was over the addiction.
