Drunk drilling dentist charged with reckless endangerment

A New York dentist who allegedly slurped vodka while treating patients has been arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.

Robert Garelick, 57, is accused of operating on unsuspecting patients while completely hammered.

Garelick apparently had bloodshot eyes at his Long Island office this week when he injected novocaine on the wrong side of a patient’s mouth — while swilling vodka from a sports bottle — then used a high-powered drill to file down another man’s chipped tooth. It was the last straw for his assistant Kimberly Curtis.

“I texted [a co-worker] . . . and told her he had the bottle in his hand and we had to do something,’’ Miss Curtis told authorities. Following a call from dental hygienist Dina Fara, cops rushed to the surgery and quizzed Garelick.

“ I’ve been sipping at that bottle all along today,’’ married dad of two Garelick told police. “I did something incredibly stupid.”

Garelick was charged with reckless endangerment, a misdemeanour offence. He plead not guilty and was released on his own recognisance.

    Fannie was a follower of the ieevstmnnt banks into the subprime market, and got in late trying to recapture market share. The real culprits are the bailed-out bankers, and Brooks is trying to deflect blame. From a Moody’s assessment is 2006:”Freddie Mac has long played a central role (shared with Fannie Mae) in the secondary mortgage market. In recent years, both housing GSEs have been losing share within the overall market due to the shifting nature of consumer preferences towards adjustable-rate loans and other hybrid products. For the first half of 2006, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac captured about 44 percent of total origination volume — up from a 41 percent share in 2005, but down from a 59 percent share in 2003. Moody’s would be concerned if Freddie Mac’s market share (i.e., mortgage portfolio plus securities as a percentage of conforming and non-conforming origination), which ranged between 18 and 23 percent between 1999 and the first half of 2006, declined below 15 percent. To buttress its market share, Freddie Mac has increased its purchases of private label securities.”The private banks got everything they wanted from government, but the least intellectuals should be doing is letting everyone know that there’s no talent or innovation there, only welfare queens.

  • Sonny Gray awful again as Trout, Angels hammer Yankees May 27, 2018
    Bill de Blasio might not be the only one who can’t handle New York. Sonny Gray had yet another brutal outing on Saturday — with an assist from Aaron Boone — as the Yankees lost to the Angels, 11-4 in the Bronx. Gray, acquired at last year’s trade deadline to improve a shaky rotation, is...
