Dog X-Ray Used to Arrest Doctor
Written by Pat's Papers | Friday, 13 July 2012 7:35 AM
To nab a doctor suspected of improperly doling out pain meds, an undercover sheriff set up an appointment, and handed the doctor an x-ray “to accompany her tale of an injured back and neck.” But the x-ray included a different tail, says the LA Times—a dog’s. Even though the German Shepard’s name and animal hospital—and tail—were clearly printed on the x-ray, the doctor quickly prescribed the woman a powerful pain killer and a muscle relaxant. He was subsequently arrested.
