Attorney: Drugs found in Matt Pitt's system are from prescriptions | News
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- The attorney for youth evangelist Matt Pitt says that drugs found in his client's system the night of his arrest are all from prescriptions that his client takes.
According to a drug test released by attorney Dan Bowman. It shows that Pitt had amphetamines, benzodiazepine and opiates in his system.
Bowman says the amphetamines are from the Adderall used to treat Pitt's ADD; the opiates are a result of a Butrans patch Pitt wears to manage pain from a torn rotator cuff; and the benzodiazepine is from Clonazepam, a sleep aid.
Pitt was arrested late in the evening of Aug. 20. The time stamp on the drug test shows that he wasn't tested until 9:51 a.m. Aug. 21. Bowman says the test was administered after Pitt was given Lortab for pain from injuries sustained during his arrest.
