Dr. Phil Astin III, the doctor who allegedly prescribed steroids and other drugs to Chris Benoit, was indicted today on 175 federal counts of illegal prescription abuse. He was previously indicted in July 2007 on seven federal counts of overprescribing to two other patients.

Today's indictment includes the charges from the first indictment and adds 150 counts relating to 17 additional patients.

According to AJC.com, the patients allegedly received illegal prescriptions for Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol, Lorcet, Ritalin, Vicodin, Xanax, Adderall and Soma. The indictment also alleges the drugs Astin dispensed resulted in the death of a patient.

That's a lot of Illegal Presciptions. In Bret Hart's book, he said Hawk of LOD would take 3 somas before a match. Just one of them would knock a full grown man on his ass. That is just one of many examples of how much abuse was and is still going on in wrestling with pain killers.

I don't think he should kill himself like you guys have mentioned, but I believe he should go to jail for the rest of his life. He probably made lots of money distrubuting all these illegal drugs, but at the end he got caught so it's wasn't worth it.

Just to be clear, I didn't think he should kill himself. By 'hang' I meant he should be punished.

If you had the brain of an 80 year old man, you'd probaly lose it too.
Sorry but I don't know what you mean...
