A third person has been arrested by Baltimore County police as part of an investigation into the Healthy Life Medical Group prescription drug clinic in Lutherville, police said Monday. The arrest of Alina Margulis, 45, of Brooklyn, New York, on drug distribution conspiracy charges follows a May 15 raid of the clinic, in the 1100 block of York Road, by about 25 county police narcotics officers and Drug Enforcement Administration agents. Two men identified as the operators of the clinic - Michael Jacob Reznikov, 51, also of Brooklyn; and Gerald Wiseberg, 78, of Boca Raton, Fl. - were arrested the same day as the raid, also on drug distribution conspiracy charges.

Tiger Woods is receiving treatment at a sex rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi, according to Benoit Denizet-Lewis, the author of a book titled "America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life."

He wrote that the programs at the clinic include group therapy sessions and family and couple's therapy.
