A Nashville doctor accused of flashing a gun at another motorist in traffic could see that charge dropped after six months if he stays out of trouble.
A felony aggravated assault charge against Dr. Richard Feldman, 62, of the Doctors’ Diet Program that has a clinic on 29th Avenue in Nashville, was reduced to reckless endangerment Tuesday and retired for six months.
That charge won’t be prosecuted if Feldman stays out of trouble over that period, according to the Williamson County General Sessions Court office.
The assault charge stemmed from a June 1 incident in which a motorist accused Feldman of flashing a gun after the doctor allegedly cut the driver off in traffic on Mallory Lane near Cool Springs Galleria.
Feldman is also facing a lawsuit in Davidson County alleging he sexual assaulted a former employee of his in the spring.
A state medical board decision to revoke his medical license is currently in the appeals process. He remains licensed to practice medicine while that process is ongoing.
