Dr. Phil Astin III, Chris Benoit’s personal doctor, was released earlier today on bond after being jailed on 7 indictments accusing him of improperly prescribing pain killers and other controlled substances. The indictments are not related to the Benoit case.
Astin is believed to have had other wrestlers as clients and federal officials have said Astin prescribed massive amounts of steroids to Benoit over the past year. Astin’s attorney says he never prescribed steroids to Benoit.
