 Illegal Butt Injections Hospitalize Another Woman

Lauretta Cheek, 42, of Greensboro, has been charged for injecting an exotic dancer's backside with a disfiguring potion that she claimed would enhance her buttocks for a sexier stage look.

She was already on probation for pumping women with drugs that claimed to be lipo-dissolve injections to reduce fat, that left three women with kidney failure. She is arrested for practicing medicine without a license.

The injected substance still remains unknown. The price of the injection was about $500. The unknown substance sent the victim to hospital emergency rooms twice.

Detective Craig Cotten said, "It appears that the substance that was injected into her basically burned its way back out. It's not just one big spot. Being a liquid or gel-type of material, it kind of went in different directions and obviously got infected and left pretty significant scarring."
