A Reston Chiropractor today was arrested on drug charges today after being accused by a co-defendant of conspiring to deliver control substances by Florida authorities. According to Florida authorities, Douglas Nagel of Reston received regular shipments of steroids from his co-defendent “Andy” Thomas of Florida. Thomas has told Police that Nagel was supplying both the Washington Nationals and the Washington Capitals with the substances.

The Capitals released a statement this afternoon denying that Nagel or Thomas had any contact with the Capitals, saying: “This has been a thorough investigation, and we are satisfied that law enforcement, the NHL and our own internal investigation have not led to any link of steroid use by Capitals players… Dr. Douglas Owen Nagel, a Virginia chiropractor who was arrested today, is not affiliated with the Washington Capitals and is not the “team chiropractor,” as he has stated. Dr. Nagel’s office, however, has seen some of our players for standard, routine chiropractic services.”

The Nationals did not immediately respond for a request for comment.
