False arrest is not exactly an actionable tort claim against a law enforcement official. Malicious prosecution is.

It's hard to believe that the sheriff in Aiken County actually went forward with charges and detained her in the county jail. We heard Sheriff Mike Hunt had numerous civil lawsuits pending against him.

She is a pathological liar. This is only one of her lesser crimes. She will be in the news again at some point for something far more evil.

This crazy woman was on call the night this happened. Doctors are not supposed to drink while on call, let alone be drinking shots. She had to enter drug and alcohol rehab after this and was then told to enter a monitoring program by the South Carolina Medical board. But, she refused because she didn't want to have to report that she was being monitored, and subsequently lost her SC license. Now she works at Lancaster Reginal Medical Center in Lancaster PA. They should really do better backgrounds checks!

She's great if you are looking for a Doc to get high and drunk with! Just make sure you don't get her pregnant. She'll steal your baby just like she has done twice before.

Her mug shot was priceless. What a joke.
