Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy arrested on count of prescription fraud

A Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested on a count of prescription fraud Wednesday, according to East Ridge police.

Lori A. Pickett, 49, who is currently working in records at the sheriff’s office, is accused of trying to pass a fake prescription in the Walgreen’s at 5301 Ringgold Road.

She was arrested in February 2011 after she assaulted her husband, Hamilton County Courts Officer Jim Pickett, several times outside Juvenile Court.

Pickett was placed on leave by the sheriff’s office Wednesday evening, said Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond. Her bond in the prescription charge was set at $1,000.
