In what must be the most frightening news of the day, 57-year-old Long Island dentist Robert Garelick was arrested for reckless endangerment yesterday after conducting a procedure while drunk. Information about the case beyond that is relatively scant, and there are some burning questions I’d like answered. How drunk was he–are we talking two-beer lunch or full-on bender? What was the procedure–simple checkup or drilling teeth? Either way, this is terrifying, and for some reason, I can’t help but think of the torture scene from Marathon Man.

Is it safe?
