NM doctor arrested for hiring prostitute

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque Police have arrested a well-known New Mexico doctor after finding him with a prostitute and cocaine.

Police spokesman Robert Gibbs told KRQE-TV Thursday that Dr. Richard Lieberman has been charged with hiring a prostitute and could face drug charges.

Detectives say they spotted Lieberman on Wednesday night stop and pick up a prostitute while driving his BMW.

Authorities allege Lieberman and the woman began snorting from a nasal spray bottle at a traffic light.

Police followed the couple to the woman's apartment where she confirmed Lieberman had agreed to pay her $100 for sex acts. Detectives say contents in the spray bottle tested positive for cocaine.

Lieberman is the founder of Urgent Care Santa Fe and is credited with starting several clinics throughout New Mexico.

    Vacant properties aren't just eye sores to the community. These abandoned homes increase the chance of crime, promote illegal activity, and are serious fire hazards. "Often we find that even though it might be boarded up someone has found a way to enter the structure. And as it gets cold, obviously those people may try to start a fire or something inside to stay warm. And as a result of course we get a structure fire," said Community Development Administrator James Allen. ...
