Dr. Daniel J. O'Hern, who reportedly practiced medicine for a while in the Hudson Valley area of Middletown, NY, was arrested Tuesday morning in Mashpee, Mass. on alleged child pornography charges.

According to WCVB-TV, O'Hern was taken into custody in an apartment at a condominium complex. He is retired and believed to have practiced medicine for 30 years. He is also the author of the book "Common Sense Pediatrics for Parents." 

Cape Cod Times reported that O'Hern was brought out of the apartment in handcuffs at about 11 a.m. Reporter Sean F. Driscoll wrote that O'Hern faces "federal charges of possession and distribution of child pornography," based on information from the United States Attorney's Office in Boston.
