View Comments

Earlier this morning, Dr. Dipak Desai was taken into custody. Desai will be booked into Clark County Detention Center. It was decided that he was not mentally competent to stand trial and he will eventually go to a mental hospital in Reno for more evaluation.

Desai is the doctor at the center of the Las Vegas hepatitis scare. About 50,000 valley residents had to get tested for hepatitis C after it was learned he had reused needles and vials. 110 people were infected with the disease.
