Dentist charged with ripping off student

By Washington Post Editors

A dentist in Florida for his son's baseball tournament was charged with stealing a college student's credit card and using it to buy pizza, according to this report:

Richard Lewis Ludwig, 54, of Okemos, Mich., also faces charges of impersonating and attempting to use the ID of another person without consent.

Read the full story on the Orlando Sentinel web site.

The first sentence of this story has terrible structure and makes no sense. It should read, "A dentist in Florida was charged with stealing a college student's credit card and using it to buy pizza FOR HIS SON'S BASEBALL TOURNAMENT, according to this report."

@lawyer77 - No, because he was not a dentist practicing IN Florida. He was IN Florida specifically for the tournament. If anything, it should read "A dentist (comma) in Florida for his son's baseball tournament (comma) was charged..." And your editing implies that he was buying pizza for the ENTIRE tournament. I don't think so. Your grammar was worse. I hope you're not a litigating lawyer.

LOL @ are so correct and lawyer77 was way off base.I too hope he does not practice anywhere, his client is in trouble and will be found guilty all because he did not read the complaint right.
