The owner of seven closed nursing homes is out on bond following his arrest in connection with several botched Hurricane Ida evacuations.

Bob Dean Jr. surrendered today on cruelty to persons with infirmities, Medicaid fraud, and obstruction of justice charges.

Louisiana prosecutors say he housed 800 elderly people in a warehouse last year, refused to move them, and billed Medicaid despite the residents not receiving care. Over a dozen died.
