Vets are examining this afternoon 60 dogs rescued from a suspected dog fighting ring in Cheatham County last Thursday. The dogs were discovered behind a home on Buckeye Road in Ashland City by firefitghers who were going to a report of a brush fire when they stumbled upon the dogs. Some of the dogs were chained to trees and barely able to move around. Investigators also found treadmills and other items generally associated with dog fighting. Officials with the Animal Rescue Corps in Washington D.C. says the outcome of the dogs' examination will be sent to the Cheatham County District Attorney office. The DA will then use that information to determine if any charges will be filed. Fox 17 News will have a live update on the dogs tonight on Fox 17 News at 9 and 10 pm

Pharmacist admits misbranding dialysis drugs
May 21, 2013 21:08 GMT
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Tennessee pharmacist has admitted distributing a misbranded Chinese-made drug that was given to kidney dialysis patients in Kansas.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 53-year-old Robert Harshbarger Jr., of Kingsport, Tenn., pleaded guilty Tuesday in Topeka to one count each of distributing a misbranded drug and health care fraud.
Harshbarger admitted that from 2004 to 2009, he substituted a cheaper Chinese import for an iron sucrose drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The drugs were given to patients of Kansas Dialysis Services. Prosecutors say there were no reports of harm, but patients were put at risk because the FDA could not assure the drugs' effectiveness and safety.
Harshbarger's plea deal calls for four years in prison, restitution of nearly $849,000 and a forfeiture of $425,000.
