As expected, the state of Florida has officially pulled Dr. Michael Reed's license to practice medicine. However we have now obtained the official letter of suspension from the state surgeon general.
The Florida Department of Health issued an emergency suspension of Dr. Reed's medical license Thursday. It is somewhat of a moot point, since Reed will remain in the Bay County Jail until he is sentenced in November on a federal cocaine conspiracy conviction.
He was immediately jailed after pleading guilty last Thursday. Dr. Reed's girlfriend Amy Cooper is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
An indictment claims Cooper made at least one telephone call to facilitate the distribution of cocaine.
