Doctor Arrested After Showing Up Drunk in a Hospital

By now everyone should know that you shouldn’t drive or operate heavy machinery while drunk. But should one carry out medical duties? A Bulgarian GP by the name of Angel Asenov answered that question in the positive when he went to work under the influence of alcohol. If that wasn’t bad enough, the doctors acted antagonistically towards patients. The authorities were soon called.

When the police arrived at the Sofian hospital, Asenov became even angrier, initially refusing to cooperate or to be checked with a breathalyzer. When the test was carried out, it was found that the doctor was heavily intoxicated. The speculated volume of hard alcohol he consumed is around 200 ml.

The incident was surprising to those that knew Asenov, as he doesn’t have a previous criminal record and there were no complaints about his professional behavior. The reasons for the episode are unknown. It could be an undisclosed personal problem. Asenov will probably be charged with hooliganism.
