Medical records show Carlos Mendoza, 49, isn’t a licensed doctor.
On Tuesday, the victim was hospitalized for complications from the injections. Police found Mendoza at his home, plus a cache of lidocain, botox and bacteriostatic water, which is used to dilute medications for injections.
He was arrested and charged with performing medical procedures without a license and illegally possessing prescription drugs with the intent to sell.
