Doctor indicted in attack on medical board chairman

New York Times, January 7, 2010

A doctor who had been repeatedly penalized by the Arkansas Medical Board was charged in federal court with planting a bomb that critically injured the board chairman as he left his home for a meeting of the panel last February. The indictment accused Randeep Singh Mann, MD, of employing "a weapon of mass destruction" in the attack on Trent P. Pierce, MD, a family practitioner, as Pierce approached his car in the driveway of his West Memphis, AK, home. Before the attack, the board had twice disciplined Mann for overprescribing drugs. In 2006 it stripped him of authority to prescribe drugs, effectively ending his practice.
