The rare case where a doctor is arrested for malpractice. “Dr. Gregory Hogle, a 56-year-old ear, nose and throat specialist, was booked and posted bond late Friday.

The family of Khusni Yusupova, 46, took her off life support on April 10, two days after Hogle removed a tube and she suffered complications, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Hogle admitted that he relied only on his own examination and did not review Yusupova’s medical records, which were brought to her appointment, the affidavit says.

He admitted to police that he made a ‘serious mistake,’ according to the affidavit. ‘She did need the tube for her airway … because she had an obstructed airway, it means she did need the tube and I made a mistake.'”
