LOS ANGELES (AP) - A medical practitioner who administered anesthesia to Michael Jackson over a 10-year period says the entertainer had a high tolerance for medications.

David Fournier, a nurse anesthetist, testified on Thursday that he was no longer asked to work with Jackson after refusing to participate in a medical procedure in 2003.

Fournier says Jackson was acting goofy and was slow to respond to standard questions before a scheduled cosmetic surgery procedure.

It was canceled after Fournier refused to administer anesthesia.

Fournier is testifying as a defense witness in a negligence case filed by Jackson's mother against AEG Live LLC, the promoter of Jackson's comeback shows.

The company denies it is liable for Jackson's death.
