Police arrested an Anderson woman accused of forging a prescription to get pain pills from a pharmacy.

Anderson police were called to Bryant Pharmacy on N. Main Street on Thursday about noon when the pharmacist said Keowsha Golden, 25, dropped off a prescription for Lortab that was forged then came back about 30 minutes later to pick up the pills.

The pharmacist called the doctor's office to see if the name on the prescription was in fact a patient, but they said it wasn't, according to the police report.

The doctor told police their office doesn't give written prescriptions, but instead emailed them directly to the pharmacy.

When the officer tried to stop Golden from leaving the pharmacy, the report said she tried to get into a locked car and resisted.

Police said the officer tried to handcuff her, and as she pulled away he pushed her into another car, leaving a dent estimated at about $500 in damage.

The officer eventually arrested her and she was taken to the hospital because she said she had stomach pains because she was pregnant.
