BATON ROUGE- A doctor had his medical license pulled by the State Board of Medical Examiners after he was accused of inappropriately touching a patient.

Dr. Howard Gidden was arrested and charged with sexual battery last week. A female patient told police he fondled her during treatment for a drug addiction.

More than ten years ago, Gidden's license was suspended for over prescribing pain killers.

Gidden's clinic is on Sherwood Forrest.
