Fake Legit: Outlaw Biker Associate Explains Expression At Federal Trial Of Philadelphia Doctor's Alleged Pill Mill
Veteran journalist and author George Anastasia (seen in the above photo) is covering the federal trial of the Philadelphia doctor accused of operating a pill mill for Bigtrial.net.
It was "fake legit," an associate of the Pagans motorcycle gang told a federal jury today in describing the pain management operation run by Dr. William O'Brien 3d in South Philadelphia, Trevose and Levittown.
"We acted legit, but we were really fake," explained Michael "Tomato Pie" Thompson in what was perhaps the most devastating testimony thus far in the three-week old conspiracy/drug dealing trial of O'Brien who is charged with running a multi-million dollar pill mill in conjunction with members of the outlaw motorcycle club.
Thompson's testimony, which will continue when the trial resumes tomorrow, came after a South Philadelphia waitress and a strip club dancer both told the jury that they were "patients" of O'Brien as part of a scheme to obtain drugs that others would sell on the streets.
All three witnesses said O'Brien was aware of and played a willing role in the scam.
