Anesthesiologist Behaving Badly, Again
It's a shame these stories about misbehaving anesthesiologists keep popping up. This time, an anesthesiologist in Fredericksburg, VA was arrested for impersonating a police officer. Dr. Gerald Bellotti almost got into a motor vehicle accident when he pulled in front of another driver, causing her to nearly rear end his car. At one point he started yelling at her and saying he had a gun in his car. He even threatened to arrest her. The distraught woman went to the police station who then tracked his license plate. Dr. Bellotti could face up to a year in jail for this stunt. Doctors, can we all just behave like responsible professionals, above reproach, and with the best interest of our professions in mind? Please?
