Arrested for hypoglycemia

An ignorant DA is continuing with charges against diabetic Doug Burns, who was arrested during a hypoglycemic episode:

. . . the authorities pressing charges are publicly chastising Doug for negligence in his diabetes care, on the basis that he was temporarily on injections rather than his usual Animas pump at the time of the incident. This was because he had run out of infusion sets during recent conference travel and was awaiting a new box.

"If life were perfect, this would never have happened... but they need to understand that anyone with type 1 diabetes is pretty much at risk for hypoglycemia at any time," Doug says.
