A randy doctor in Massachusetts has today been arrested on suspicion of writing lewd prescriptions. Dr George "Arthur" Macarthur, 39, was taken from his home and placed into custody last night, with the arresting officers making only as much noise during the arrest as to wake every friend and neighbor in the area.
Dr Macarthur, well known in the region, and until this incident extraordinarily well respected, was said to be devasted by the arrest. Macarthur is particularly well known for his work over the last few years trying to eradicate some of the more baffling and troubling myths about immunisation being, for example, more dangerous than the deadly diseases they attempt to prevent, and has regularly been called on to "slap-down" anti-vaccination figureheads like Jenny McCarthy.
"Well, I know why he was arresteded," one sassy man told us, who declined to give his real name. "He arresteded because he is a dirty, and he want to get people to do things to other people what is unnatural likes."
Indeed, the rumours, though we stress at this point that they are only that, are that one of Dr Macarthur's patients filed the complaint against him after being given a prescription which was to be taken 'orally'. Claiming that the patient knew perfectly well what that meant, thank you very much, an online petition against the doctor was quickly put up on the internet and garnered over 5,000 votes in record time. Some Facebook users went so far as to add his name to a list of child-sex offenders.
Dr Macarthur's attorneys have yet to respond to the press. More when we have it.
