Revealed: US doctor who was dragged off flight was felon who traded prescription drugs for secret gay sex with a patient and needed anger management because of ‘control’ issues
Married Dr David Dao was convicted of giving a patient drugs in return for gay sex and barred from practicing in Louisville, KY. He was allowed back after anger management and other counselling – which revealed his mental state. It said that he had ‘a pattern of deception’, ‘lacked the foundation to navigate difficult situations’ a ‘need to control, avoidance, withholding information’ and ‘magical thinking’. The doctor, a 69-year-old grandfather, has received sympathy from around the world in the wake of being dragged off the United flight from Chicago to Louisville by three police officers. One has been suspended. He has yet to speak about the incident.
Bet there’s a bonus on offer to that little investigator.
Oooh, yes, lots of bonuses
Dao joined the World Series of Poker circuit in 2006 and spent the next decade at the tables, earning him $234,664.
