Jeb Bush's daughter charged with prescription fraud
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Gov. Jeb Bush's 24-year-old daughter was arrested at a pharmacy drive-through window Tuesday on charges of trying to buy the anti-anxiety drug Xanax with a fraudulent prescription.
Authorities said Noelle Bush apparently posed as a doctor and called in the phony prescription after suffering a panic attack Monday evening.
Bush was released pending a Jan. 31 arraignment. She could get up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine if convicted.
Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba, issued a statement saying they were "deeply saddened" by the incident involving their only daughter.
Xanax, similar to Valium, is normally used to treat anxiety disorders.
