BENTONVILLE, AR -- A Benton County doctor, accused of embezzlement, pleads not guilty. County Prosecutor Van Stone says Dr. Ruben Tejada entered the plea Monday.

Tejada was arrested in October on a charge of theft of property. According to the probable cause, an employee at Northwest Health System in Bentonville said the doctor was pocketing cash from self-pay patients. According to the report, Tejada may have even threatened a staff member to keep his dealings quiet, stating "he knew someone in the mafia."

The doctor is scheduled to be back in court on February 18, 2014.
