Cancer Surgeon is Arrested for Leaving the Scene of an Accident, Reckless Endangerment, Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct after Ramming a NYPD cop in the Leg with her Volvo while trying to avoid a Double-Parking… Scroll down to read more!

Meet Dr. Rachel Wellner, a breast cancer specialist at Montefiore Hospital, in NYC. That’s her below…  She’s very pretty isn’t she?

The 40 year old Doc wasn’t looking quite as glamorous on Thursday, February 18th, 2016 when she was arrested for allegedly rammed a NYPD officer in the leg with her car as she tried to avoid a double-parking ticket in Manhattan.  Per the NYPD the incident began when the Doc saw the cops writing her a summons for double parking her car and the doctor got upset, cursing at the officers and literally jumping onto her car.  The Doc then reportedly got into her car and tried driving off with the driver’s side door open, hitting one of the officers in the shin. The Doc was stopped two blocks way by another police officer, who then arrested her.

The Doc thinks herself to be the victim, telling the New York Post that “I double parked the car and got a ticket”.  She claimed to have driven off because “the police used force on me. I was beaten up.”  But the cops say that she was belligerent, telling them:  “I’m a doctor.  I have patients that are dying.  I have to go.  I’m the hero and the cops are not.  I do not accept the summons.”

The Doc has been charged with resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.  Per her criminal defense lawyer, Alan Futerfas:  “Obviously a misunderstanding occurred.”

Um, yeah… I’d say so.  The misunderstanding is that the Doc did not follow the advise of the Rock…

Memo to the Folks:  This goes to show that cancer surgeon’s are not necessarily as smart as either you or I.  If you find yourself on the receiving end of an allegation by law enforcement (whether it’s a parking ticket, a DUI investigation, a domestic violence call… whatever the circumstances… when it’s you and the cops and you think that they are wrong…) then BE SMARTER than Dr Rachel Wellner and recognize that there is a time, place and manner to attack the bogus charges, and it is never by you in the moment.  My Rx:  Take one of these and call me in the morning!
