Police Nab the Botox Bandit
In these tight economic times, there are many daring ideas worth trying to save some coin. That off-brand cereal that comes in plastic trash bags. Mexican dentistry. Pabst Blue Ribbon.
But only in Miami are you likely to find the true spendthrifts, those willing to put their lips on the line by turning to Juan Aguirrechu, unlicensed Botox injector extraordinaire.
Alas, the salad days of Botox on the cheap appear to have come to an end.
According to the Herald, Coral Gables police have arrested Aguirrechu on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license.
He could face a five-year sentence, all for helping the beautiful but broke of South Florida maintain their shiny plastic faces.
