Christina or Chris?
BOISE, Idaho (The Blaze/AP) - Police arrested a woman in Idaho's capital city after they say she impersonated a plastic surgeon and conducted breast exams on at least two women in local bars. But "she" used to be a "he."
Kristina B. Ross was arrested Tuesday and jailed on accusations of unlicensed practice of medicine.
It all started earlier this month, when Boise police were called to a downtown medical office by employees of a licensed plastic surgeon.
Police say the office was getting calls from prospective patients who wanted to see a Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. But no doctor by that name worked at the office.
Police got contact information for the women who had called, interviewed them - and then identified the 37-year-old Ross, who isn't licensed to practice medicine.
Ross, however, hasn't always been a woman. According to KVAL, Boise Police detectives say "Christinia" used to be "Chris" but had reconstructive surgery.
According to prosecutors, Christina would convince women she was a plastic surgeon, get women to disrobe, feel their breasts, and then gave diagnoses.
"Christina" is being charged with two felony counts for the unlicensed practice of medicine.
