Fort Worth, Texas (Polygon) – Fort Worth’s Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday it’s taking action against the man behind the video that went viral this week.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Monday that District Attorney David Arrington filed a complaint against 32-year-old John “John” O’Brien.
O’Briens video was posted last month to YouTube, with the hashtag #KooSucks.
Arrington said the video shows a dentist taking a sample from a patient’s mouth and then placing it in a plastic bag before pulling out the sample and snorting it.
The dental professional then proceeds to pull out the teeth and spit them out.
O’Brien also posted a link to the video on his personal Facebook page on Monday and said he will not be making any further comments about the matter.
The video has since garnered over 5 million views and garnered more than 20,000 comments.
The office said O’briens behavior was unacceptable, and that it would not tolerate it in the future.
The office said the department will investigate whether there are any violations of district policies.
In a statement, Arrington said: “I was shocked and appalled by the behavior displayed in the video, which is contrary to the dignity and respect that is owed to the office and to all members of the Fort Worth community.”
He said he had contacted the local district attorney’s office, the Fort Bend Police Department and the Fort Hood Police Department to discuss the matter.
“The actions that have occurred in the last week have only made the situation worse and the public even more upset,” Arrington wrote.
“This has been a difficult, and dangerous, time for the Fort Fort Worth dental community.”
Arrington urged people to watch the video again and report the person to the district attorney.
He also said the district’s community outreach efforts will be increased.
“Our community is not the problem, but the behavior of this individual has become the problem,” Arruffin said.
“We will continue to be focused on working together with our local and state partners to prevent these kinds of behaviors from happening in the first place.”
