    A Long Island pizzeria owner has been accused of selling prescription pain pills out of his restaurant.

    Francesco Miceli, 50, was arrested Tuesday following a three-month police investigation into the alleged sale of prescription drugs at Miceli Brothers Pizzeria and Restaurant in West Babylon.

    Miceli allegedly sold Oxycodone hydrochloride pills to an undercover police officer on several occasions. He was charged with seven counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

    Information on Miceli's attorney wasn't immediately available. He's scheduled to be arraigned later Wednesday in Central Islip.
