There’s an update in the story of the United Airlines doctor being dragged off a flight. TMZ did some digging (because of course they did) and found out Dr. David Dao was convicted of 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers! Not only that, he was writing prescriptions and checks in exchange for…favors. You know what I mean?
The doctor surrendered his license in 2005 after being prosecuted, but the medical board lifted the suspension and allowed him to practice medicine with restrictions in 2015. He currently works one day a week at an outpatient facility. Obviously, none of this means he should’ve been treated that way! But there’s a chance his past will be brought up in court, if it goes there. Which… Duh.
