Shocking information is being revealed about the doctor who was violently dragged off an United Airlines flight on Sunday.

People around the world were in complete and utter disgust on Monday when a video hit the web of Dr. David Dao being forcefully removed from the seat he paid for.

After overbooking the flight from Chicago to Louisville, the airlines chose the doctor at random to give up his seat. But things took a disturbing turn when he didn’t comply.

According to the airlines, Dao became belligerent when he was asked to leave the aircraft. That’s when officers ferociously grabbed him, pulled him over three armrests, busted his lip and dragged him down the aisle. Per the airlines, he was not complying with standard procedure.

Although the man was wildly mistreated and the airline’s actions were completely inexcusable, new details about the doctor’s past might alter opinion about the victim.

Here are five shocking revelations about Dr. Dao.

According to TMZ, Dao was 1. “charged in 2005 with 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers.” Apparently, prosecutors accused the doctor of fraudulently filling prescriptions for “hydocodone, Oxycontin and Percocet.”

2. That same year, Dao was given 5 years probation after being convicted on 6 felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit.

3. Dao’s past also apparently includes being convicted for “writing prescriptions and checks to a patient in exchange for sex.”

4. Following the string of legal woes, in February 2005, Dao “surrendered his license to practice medicine in Kentucky.” But ten years later, the medical board “lifted the suspension and allowed him to practice medicine again.”

5. Fast forward to one year later, in 2016, the medical board put restriction on his practice. Now, according to TMZ, Dao can “only practice internal medicine in an outpatient facility one day a week.”

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
