This photo carried the caption: Dr. Thompson's attorney, Peter Swarth, and his shy publicist
Can you imagine how bad your public image must be if the person you are hiring to stand in front of the camera on your behalf is hiding his face like he doesn't want to be associated with you? By my estimates the attorney is approximately 5'3" which is big for vermin even in the citrus state.
The attorney spoke to the press after the pleading and asked the communty to "Lower the heat" on the doctor as he has received numerous threats on his life and limb via email and phone. This is the second road rage incident the doctor is accused of against a cyclist.
Dr. Thompson appeared in court w/his attorney and a publicist, both of whom helped him navigate the press by dodging out the side door and into a chauffeur driven SUV.
As of this report the doctor was able to make it home without another road rage incident.
