Police Chief Faces Drug Charge

     ABINGDON, Va. (AP) - A police chief in southwestern Virginia has been charged with drug distribution.
 
     Marion Police Chief Michael Dean Roberts was arrested Wednesday morning on one count of distribution of a controlled substance. An affidavit filed by a federal agent in U.S. District Court in Abingdon accuses the 54-year-old Saltville resident of selling the prescription painkiller Lortab to a cooperating witness.
 
     Court records do not list an attorney for Roberts, and no hearing date has been scheduled.
 
     Roberts did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages seeking comment.
