Atlanta, GA (LifeNews.com) – A Georgia abortion practitioner displayed his pro-woman credentials Monday afternoon when he was arrested in a road rage incident that saw him punch a woman in the face. Sandy Springs police arrested Marietta-based abortion practitioner Daniel E. McBrayer, 58, after learning he assaulted a woman.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution indicated police conducted an investigation after a woman reported told police that McBrayer struck her.

After a traffic altercation, McBrayer reportedly left his vehicle and walked up to her car and struck her in the face.

Sandy Springs police Lt. Steve Rose told the newspaper that the woman, whose name was unreleased, was treated at a local hospital before heading home.

Rose indicated the abortion practitioner turned himself into police on Wednesday night and was booked on a simple battery charge at Doraville Jail. He was released after posting a $1,500 bond and awaits a date in court, which has not been set.

This isn’t the first time McBrayer has been in trouble.

The Atlanta newspaper indicated McBrayer was disciplined by the Composite State Board of Medical Examiners in 2001 for doing second-trimester abortions at his office. Georgia law requires that any abortion after the first-trimester be done in a hospital so women who suffer from botched abortions can receive immediate medical care.

McBrayer eventually agreed to a consent order where he also admitted he had not proper filed certificates of abortions as Georgia law requires.

In that incident, he was fined $5,000 and had his medical license placed on probation for two years.
