Dr. Dwight Collman (58) was arrested Monday on charges of robbery, battery on a uniformed security guard and criminal mischief. From the probable cause affidavit filed in the court, this concerns an incident in front of Dr. Collman’s home in the gates Seasons community off Jog Road south of Clint Moore.
Collman had a DUI case in 2001 and a 2006 aggravated battery and criminal mischief case. Both sets of charges were dropped by prosecutors. His record with Department of Health also shows a criminal incident involving trespassing at his daughter’s high school but we see no record of that in any court.
Collman is a certified specialist in emergency medicine. He runs the Collman Institute, apparently from his home, which helps prepare other physicians for emergency medicine board exams. He claims to have helped over 12,000 physicians. He’s also a co-author of a 2005 Emergency Medicine Board Review prep book.
From what we understand, Dr. Collman was involved in an argument on Saturday with a security guard from the Seasons community related to a violation of homeowners assocation rules. Dr. Collman allegedly punched the security guard in the chest, grabbed the guard’s cell phone, stuck it in a wet vac, and then threw it at the guard.
