An Alaska dentist who extracted a patient’s tooth while riding on a hoverboard has been sentenced to 12 years behind bars for that stunt and other wheel-y bad crimes.
Seth Lookhart was sentenced Monday in Anchorage Superior Court on dozens of charges that stemmed from his scooting antics to Medicaid fraud and removing a patient’s teeth without their permission, the Anchorage Daily News reported.
He was convicted back in January on charges of reckless endangerment, illegally practicing dentistry and medical assistance fraud.
“In reviewing all this over and over again, I have this visceral response — you darn near killed some people,” Judge Michael Wolverton said in handing down the sentence.
The court heard testimony at his trial from patient Veronica Wilhelm, who was sedated when he was recorded performing her tooth extraction on a hoverboard in July 2016.

He allegedly texted a video of the stunt to at least eight people, joking that it was a “new standard of care,” NBC News reported.
Lookhart — who had his dental license suspended in 2017 — was also ordered by the judge not to practice medicine during his 10-year probation once he’s released from prison, the Anchorage Daily News reported.Filed under alaska , dentists , hoverboards , sentencing , 9/16/20

Pennsylvania Man Suspected Of Using Drone To Drop Explosives Near Ex’s Home Sentenced
BANGOR, Pa. (CBS/AP) — A Northampton County man who federal prosecutors said used a drone to drop explosives near his ex-girlfriend’s home in eastern Pennsylvania has been sentenced to five years in prison on weapons charges. Jason Muzzicato, 45, was arrested in June 2019 after authorities raided his Washington Township home and his auto shop in Bangor.
They were investigating a series of small explosions that had rattled area residents for several weeks.
The searches turned up numerous guns and ammunition that Muzzicato wasn’t allowed to have because his ex-girlfriend had a protection from abuse order against him, authorities said. Muzzicato said he had guns in the house because he had been subject to harassment, including damage to his vehicles and those of customers at his business.
Muzzicato denied flying the drone but eventually pleaded guilty in December to two weapons possession counts and flying an unregistered aircraft. He was sentenced Thursday.
