jacques roy arrested on charges related to $375 million health care fraud

this morning we noticed that we were being bombarded from all over the country by "jacques roy" googlers.

naturally, we were curious as to what the alexandria mayor had done to garner so much national interest -- but not enough to google his name for ourselves.

jacques maurice roy is the name of the mayor of alexandria, louisiana;

it wasnt until a googler from general motors corporation in troy, michigan was doing a google image search "jacques roy arrest photo" that we went over to news.google.com and entered "jacques roy" to learn that the jacques roy that everyone is interested in -- is actually dr. jacques roy, "a texas physician," who along with six others were arrested tuesday, 28 february 2012, "on charges they bilked medicare and medicaid of $375 million from 2006 until last november."

we know that the local anti-roys are disappointed although the superstitious amongst them will probably take it as an omen.
