Maze thank you for some current entertainment. Agree or dis to an article like this isn't possible. What happened to other. I heard this one on the news. As soon as it happened people started screaming it was racial. If there aren't enough seats pull out the waiters and force people to get their own drinks.
The passenger is a putz!
I agree, if he had a problem with the decision he should have filed a complaint or taken them to court, not physically resisted efforts to remove him.
[TMZ] Dr. David Dao was charged in 2005 with 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers. Prosecutors claimed Dao fraudulently filled prescriptions for hydrocodone, Oxycontin and Percocet.
Dr. Dao was also convicted on 6 felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit and in 2005 was given 5 years probation.
Dao was also convicted for writing prescriptions and checks to a patient in exchange for sex.
In medical board documents ... Dao denied paying for sex, but indicated he accepted sexual favors from an associate in exchange for reducing a debt that associate owed him.
All that aside - I mean it really has nothing to do with this incident - his refusal to cooperate with authorities is disgraceful.
IMO - there's a a lot of blame to spread around. It should never have escalated to the point it did. Shame on who ever was dragging that ass off the plane. Even the other passengers! Anyone of them could have volunteered to get off instead of bitching about the airlines decision to remove the doctor.
I know you are joking, but that's exactly what motivated this jack wad I believe. He's a big time poker player you know. An opportunity comes along to cash in - and this player went in to full Grammy mode.
