Police in Rogers arrested Brian Thomas Hyatt, 49, a Rogers psychiatrist, on Monday, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported. He was being held in the Benton County Jail for the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office with no bond set, according to online jail records. A telephone call seeking comment from his attorney, Erin Cassinelli, was not immediately returned Tuesday.
