An East Texas doctor, who already served time in federal prison, was arrested Friday around 4:00 p.m., for homicide and drug distribution.

Friday, at 3:56 p.m., DEA Agents from the Tyler Field Office along with Kilgore Police Officers served felony arrest warrants at 2803 Chandler Street in Kilgore, which resulted in the arrest of former medical doctor William Martin Valuck.

The warrant service was provided at the request of Oklahoma law enforcement officials. The warrants issued for Valuck, 71, included nine counts of homicide and 43 counts of drug distribution in Oklahoma.

Valuck was taken into custody and transported to the Rusk County Jail in Henderson, by DEA Agents pending his extradition to Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma City.

Valuck, who in 2002 was concvicted of one count of wire fraud, two counts of theft of funds valued $5,000 or more in interstate commerce and and one count of money laundering, spent time in federal prison before moving to East Texas.

Valuck was booked into the Rusk County Justice Center and bond was denied.

Docs are finally being arrested, charged & prosecuted for crimes they commit. Many are providing prescription drugs to addicts who OD. Some addicts are parents whose kids get them. Some docs are making some kids addicts w/Adderall & ritalin. Some docs are in drug tx, while others are in denial. Put these docs out of business & off the streets. They cause addicts- their "patients" to steal to buy prescriptions. It will stop addicts from "doctor shopping." Docs get rich off addicts. Stop it now!
