MEMO: METRO REPORT
A University of Kentucky professor was indicted by a Fort Lauderdale grand jury in connection with a scheme to distribute fake Botox anti-wrinkle shots, documents released Tuesday revealed. Dr. Robert S. Baker is a director of plastic surgery at the university's Lexington hospital. Florida osteopathic physician Bach McComb, who injected himself and three others who became paralyzed in November with botulism, was charged last month in a 48-count indictment, along with two Arizona naturopathic doctors, Chad Livdahl and Zarah Karim. The earlier indictment did not include Baker, who could not be reached for comment. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of $1.5 million in "ill-gotten gains" from the fake Botox sales in addition to jail time for those charged.
