Warrant Issued For Michael Jackson’s Former Doctor

February 21, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Michael Jackson’s other doctor who pumped him full of powerful drugs. TMZ reports that a judge issued a warrant for the arrest of Arnold Klein, who was Jackson’s dermatologist and friend. If you will recall, Klein’s career went into a downward spiral once it was revealed that he injected Jackson with Demerol multiple times in the months leading to his death and used different aliases in prescribing drugs to Jackson.

The warrant is due to the fact that Klein, who filed for bankruptcy, failed to turn over more than 100 pieces of expensive artwork and a 2001 Ferrari Spider to the bankruptcy trustee. The art includes pieces by Andy Warhol (including his famous Marilyn Monroe portrait), Robert Graham, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Renoir, Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec.

Klein told TMZ about the warrant, “It’s bulls**t, it’s fraud. Have them come arrest me.”
