    FL - Dr. David is no doctor - Tampa FL

    TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - He seemed legitimate to a few people.

    But others at Tampa General Hospital believed something didn't seem quite right about "Dr. David", as he called himself.

    And they were right. "Dr. David" was no real doctor.

    30-year-old Anthony David was arrested at his Spring Hill Home Thursday morning, charged with three counts of practicing medicine without a license, grand theft and possession with intent to deliver prescription drugs.

    Tampa General says in late July and early August, David was seen observed the hospital campus. At one point, he tried to obtain an ID. He didn't get one and the hospital notified its staff members to keep an eye out for him.


    Investigators say the real concern was David's interaction with a TGH employee, to whom he provided a medical exam. And Detectives say David also befriended employees at a Tampa orthopedic company. He's accused of examining the family member of an employee and even advised that person to quit taking medication that had been prescribed by a real doctor.

    Police want to hear from anyone who had contact with David.

    This story is crazy! How long did he think that he could get away with this? I am glad that he has been caught.
