Birmingham doctors threatened by patients

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Doctors in Birmingham say they’re seeing more cases of prescription drug abuse than they are of “street drugs.”

CBS 42′s Kaitlin McCulley sat down with some local doctors who have had some pretty close calls with desperate patients.
