FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A Fort Wayne pain doctor whose license was suspended after a federal raid of his home and office last month wants his guns back.
Dr. Michael Cozzi was accused of over-prescribing a large number of painkillers, and initially charged with possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug, but prosecutors have since let that charge expire.
Still, the Fort Wayne Police Department is holding onto a large number of firearms they seized at his home, and Cozzi appeared in Allen Superior Court to demand they be returned.
A hearing on that request will be held in August, according to the Journal Gazette, which also reports there is a law in Allen County that allows for the warrantless seizure of guns from those deemed a “danger” to either themselves or others.
