The United Airlines passenger who was hauled off an overbooked plane is a poker-playing doctor from Kentucky with a sordid past.
Dr. David Dao, 69, who was captured in a now-viral video being forcibly dragged off the Louisville-bound flight at Chicagos OHare Airport on Sunday, was working as a doctor specializing in pulmonary disease in Elizabethtown when he was convicted of trading prescription drugs for sex favors.
According to documents filed with the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Dao was arrested in 2003 on the drug-related offenses following an undercover investigation.

How in the hell does he still hold a medical license?
This is a hit piece by United.
I knew there was more to this story.
And his wife is a doctor as is 4 of his 5 kids.
Is it the same guy ?
He looks younger than 69 in the pics .
Sounds like a piece of work. But what does any of that have to do with the abysmally horrible way that United treated a customer?
And, this has WHAT to do with the story of being dragged off the plane?
Are we seeing the politics of personal destruction aimed at private citizens, now?
United was in the wrong, here. Regardless of the character of their chosen victim.
Probable Cause, Illegal Search and Seizure.
Even if he was the most evil man in the USA, you still need a Warrant to arrest and detain someone who is a USA citizen.
Explains why he was nearly hysterical to get to his “patients.”
How is this relevant to what the airline did?
Hasnt a thing to do with the fact. He was dragged off that plane because they overbooked it.
Let them try to use this in court and see what happens.
Maybe the whole thing was a scam to make a public scene and file a lawsuit to extort money from United?
Well then he certainly deserved to be beaten and dragged off the plane. Not!
He did his time and kept the license. If United thinks this is going to help their case they are as stupid as the goons that drug him off the plane.
So? He had a ticket, a reserved seat, and a boarding pass. If they double-sold the seat, the guy with the boarding pass who is already sitting in it should have priority.
Regardless of his personal issues that have nothing to do with him getting beat up.
The guy & his wife are both doctors, so money shouldn't be an issue. However, anything is possible I guess.
He paid for a ticket and did not want to give up his seat.
A private company that could not provide the service he paid for due to the company's conduct utilized law enforcement to break their contract with the paying customer.
I have ZERO sympathy for United and no one else should either.
