Mr. Universe WINS In Court

From Diabetes Health: Charges Against Bodybuilder Doug Burns Dropped

I'm a littl e late in publishing this article, but I'm fighting a nasty cold. Here's an excerpt:

The decision to dismiss the case and not go to trial was based upon evidence from an endocrinologist that Doug was in diabetic shock at the time of the incident and therefore had a viable defense of unconsciousness.

It's nice to see some logic come through. Let this be a reminder to us diabetics that even though it is 2007, not everyone is aware of how to treat hypo- and hyperglycemia.

Glad to hear cooler heads prevailed here, but I think there are some bigger issues here than just how the police deal with diabetics.
