Below is a transcript of Orlando Police arresting officer J. Hughley ( patient’s last name is removed):

I,officer Hughley was sitting inside the office when I heard a OWC [Orlando Woman’s Center] patient run out of one of the rooms screaming advising the doctor has slapped her. I followed the patient outside and she advised in a sworn written statement: she went into the exam room to get an abortion procedure and the doctor was trying to find a vein to give some valium. She Amanda ______ advised the doctor had poked her three times trying to get the needle in the vein. She told him the needle was not in the vein and it started to burn. Amanda advised she started screaming. The doctor took the needle out and told her to shut up because she was scaring other patients. Amanda advised she got up and told the doctor she wanted to leave, so she stood up and the doctor slapped her on the left side of the face. Amanda advised that’s when she left. She also advised she did not give the doctor permission to slap her and wishes to press charges. Due to the needle or medicine Amanda’s fingers began to turn blue, so OFD (Orlando Fire Department) was notified. When I (officer Hughley) went back inside the building, the doctor (Dr Whitney) was sitting in the front office and he advised he did slap Amanda because she was being very uncooperative and he was trying to calm her down. Assistant Sonia Merced was inside the room with Dr. Whitney, but refuse to say what happened, nor did she want to write a statement. Dr Whitney refused to write a statement also. Amanda’s face was red on the left side of the face. Whitney was arrested and transported to central booking for aggravated battery.

Whitney was arrested and taken to jail and later released on bond.
Florida Case#: 2010-CF-004271-A-O

According to FORERUNNER:

When the case was finally decided by the Florida Board of Medicine on August 12th, 2013, Whitney was reprimanded and received the following disciplinary actions.

An administrative fine of $7,500 and other court costs totaling $8,041.31 to be paid within 30 days from the date this Final Order is filed.

The completion of 3 hours of continuing medical education (CME) in the area of medical ethics and completion of the Laws and Rules course sponsored by the Florida Medical Association (FMA) within one year from the date the Final Order is filed.

Within 90 days from the date of entry of the Final Order, Respondent shall submit to an evaluation by the Professionals Resource Network (PRN) and present the evaluation to the Probation Committee.

Whitney’s medical license status was changed from CLEAR/ACTIVE to OBLIGATIONS /ACTIVE. According to the Florida Department of health this means that

… the licensing board or department has disciplined the licensed practitioner and a penalty, which may include restrictions and/or additional requirements, was placed on the licensed practitioner. The licensed practitioner may practice his/her profession in the state of Florida under the conditions specified by the licensing board or department. Practitioner is obligated to update his/her profile data (FL DOH).

Operation Rescue has reported that Whitney has faced license suspension and probation in the past and has been accused of illegal late-term abortions beyond the limits set by law by improperly using ultrasound to determine fetal age. Whitney defiantly closed his Daytona Beach abortion clinic rather than comply with laws governing clinic safety.
