Disco dancing dentist in the dock

A woman in the US is suing her dentist after claiming he nearly drilled her eye while dancing to the disco classic Car Wash.

Brandy Fanning, 31, says George Trusty was boogieing to Rose Royce’s 1976 hit when his drill slipped, reports the Syracuse Post-Standard.

The inch-long bit punctured her sinus cavity, lodging by her eye socket at the Syracuse Community Health Centre.

She is suing Trusty, 57, for £300,000 in New York, saying he failed to honour a promise to pay her medical bills. Ms Fanning underwent emergency surgery after Dr Trusty was unable to remove the bit, her lawyer, Joseph Cote III, said.

The lawsuit said Dr Trusty was ‘performing rhythmical steps and movements to the song Car Wash which was on the radio’.
