Doctor Convicted in DUI Jury Trial
A Tri-Cities doctor charged with DUI apparently felt that because he was a doctor, he should be treated differently. The Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper who arrested Dr. Kiran Patibandla told the court that he was having trouble, even at slow speeds, keeping his vehicle in one lane of travel. He apparently failed three field sobriety tests. Dr. Patibandla was found guilty in a Washington County Tennessee Courtroom after less than an hour of deliberation by the jury. According to the arresting trooper the doctor alluded to the fact that someday he may need medical attention from the Dr. and his friends would not render aid. There was no discussion of those alleged threats during the actual trial. He is a doctor of internal medicine with a Johnson City practice. Patibandla will pay a $350 fine and be on probation for 11 months and 29 days.(CS)
