California DUI lawyer that the plastic surgeon who operated on the mother of rapper Kanye West the day before she died of heart disease was arrested early today for driving the wrong way on a Solano County freeway while under the influence, California DUI lawyers said.
Jan Adams, 54, of Laguna Beach (Orange County) was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers at about 2:40 a.m. after motorists saw him driving a 2004 Jaguar XJ8 southbound in the northbound lanes of Interstate 680 near Gold Hill Road in the Benicia area, said California DUI lawyers.
CHP officers stopped Adams on the freeway near Lake Herman Road. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and driving with a license that had been suspended because of an earlier drunken driving conviction, California DUI attorneys said.
In November, Adams operated in Los Angeles on West's mother, 58-year-old Donda West. She died a day after the doctor performed liposuction and breast implant surgery on her.
The Los Angeles coroner concluded that heart disease and clogged coronary arteries were factors in her death and did not cite Adams' work.
Adams has promoted himself a cosmetic surgery expert in books and on TV. His license to practice medicine expired Wednesday because he allegedly failed to pay child support, according to California DUI lawyers.
