The Charleston Daily Mail reports a registered nurse is suing the CEO of West Virginia Media Holdings, parent company of TV stations in West Virginia and Ohio, over claims he left her with post traumatic stress disorder after an insurance physical.
Melinda Heiss says she went to the Huntington, WV, CBS affiliate WOWK to perform a physical on Bray Cary, Jr. because he was buying life insurance. Heiss says Cary became “very hostile and belligerent” towards her when she started asking questions during the physical.
Heiss claims Cary twice pulled hair out of her head while grabbing her phone away from her. She also said he used an office rather than a restroom to pee into his urine sample cup and came out of the office with his pants unzipped.
