Doug Burns Update

From Diabetes Health:
Update On Mr. Universe: Doug Burns Arraigned in Court:

The District Attorney asserts that based upon current evidence, Doug was not in an altered mental state due to low blood sugar, although Doug has reportedly submitted substantial medical documentation to the contrary.

I'm going to watch this very closely. Why? In the past, it has been my experience that emergency and law enforcement officials usually don't know how to treat insulin dependent diabetics properly. They are not trained appropriately.

My hunch: I have a feeling the DA has 'hired' endocrinologists who claim Mr. Burns was just fine during this whole ordeal. Either that or there is something to Mr. Burns' character that I'm unaware of. Either case, this event could've been handled differently.

There's more to come...
