Custody Battle: Arrest and Suspension

The North Carolina Medical Board suspended Dr. Werner Scott Haddon's license – after the doctor was arrested and charged with multiple counts of assault and battery with intent to kill and one count each of kidnapping and burglary.

Dr. Haddon, a general surgeon, was arrested after he allegedly kidnapped his son, who was in the guardianship of his grandmother.

Dr. Haddon held his son hostage and became involved in a police standoff. After firing several shots at officers, the boy escaped, and Dr. Haddon continued to fire at police. He was taken into custody after police returned fire and shot him.

This is so very sad. Surely his intent was not to kill his son, but then things took a drastic turn and now the whole family will never be the same.

How tragic.
