A Maine firefighter who pleaded guilty to driving under the influence while working as a paramedic has been sentenced to a 150-day license suspension. The Bangor Daily News reports 55-year-old James Perry was also ordered to pay a $500 fine during his sentencing Wednesday. Perry was responding to a suspected drowning in Bath, Maine in September as a paramedic for Mid Coast Hospital when police say they noticed signs of impairment. Police arrested Perry, and court documents show his blood alcohol level was tested at 0.08 percent. Police later determined there was no drowning. A spokeswoman for the hospital said Friday Perry is no longer employed there. Neither the Bath city manager nor Perry’s attorney have responded to requests for comment.(

A Virginia man has pleaded guilty to posing as a doctor and treating patients. The Virginian-Pilot reports 31-year-old Vishal Patel admitted to providing false information in a Drug Enforcement Administration record and aggravated identity theft Monday. Court documents say Patel obtained a job at Stoneybrook Physicians with the help of fake diplomas, educational certificates, and state licenses. While employed by the Newport News clinic, they say, he saw nearly two dozen patients. He ordered examinations and prescribed medications. He was let go when clinic employees were unable to verify his credentials. While posing as a licensed Roanoke physician, Patel contacted DEA employees in 2017 and requested the Social Security number connected to a real doctor's license be altered to his own. Patel also submitted forged documents. He's expected to be sentenced in March. (
