Yesterday, while most of us were busy making our asses fat the traditional way -- with lots and lots of delicious stuffing and turkey -- police were still busy dealing with the saga of Oneal Ron Morris, the fake doctor accused of injecting patients' butts with a mix of cement and Fix-A-Flat. Morris was re-arrested after other victims came forward, and another man was arrested for assisting Morris in the procedures.
Morris was re-arrested late Wednesday after other victims came forward. Morris was originally arrested last week for practicing medicine without a license. The victim in the original case is still recovering from the procedure, which happened in May 2010. The media attention has caused more victims to come forward, and now more charges have been filed. Apparently all victims had to receive real medical treatment after undergoing Morris's back-alley procedures.
Morris, who identifies as a woman but is legally considered a man, is being held on $1,500 bond.
Meanwhile, 40-year-old Corey Eubank has been charged with assisting Morris with the procedures.
"I have no clue what you guys are talking about. I have no clue what I was being charged with. No clue," Eubank told WSVN. "I am now a victim, so you need to treat me like a victim."
Eubank has since bonded out of jail.
