LAS VEGAS (AP) - The state medical board has filed a complaint against a Las Vegas urologist accused of squirting a patient's bodily fluid onto others during a surgery.

The three-count complaint filed against Dr. Avi Chaim Weiss on Sept. 26 says his actions bring the medical profession into disrepute.

Investigators say Chaim was performing an operation on a 76-year-old man last January when he intentionally squirted fluids from the patient's scrotum into the air and onto others multiple times.

The board says he didn't mention the incident in medical records or his report about the operation.

Chaim did not immediately respond to a request for comment left at his office Thursday. He has 20 days to file a response with the board.
