FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – A Florida man has been arrested for running an illegal silicone clinic out of his bedroom – and that’s not even the half of it.
Investigators in Flagler County said Donnie Hendrix was using industrial silicone, known as “GI Thinner,” which is used to repair furniture, and has no medical use, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.
Deputies were tipped off after one of his clients called the police crimeline claiming they had gotten sick following an injection.
"Undercovers went into the house he was fully prepared to inject them,” Flagler County Sheriff's Officer David Obrien told the news station. “The needles were already laid out for the girls."
This isn’t the first time Hendrix has been in trouble with the law.
In 2003, he served two years behind bars after he was found guilty of practicing medicine without a license. In that case, a woman died when her lungs filled with silicone after an injection, according to the report.
Hendrix, who’s out on bail, denies any wrongdoing.
