San Diego Chargers doc reprimanded by state

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego Chargers' team doctor has been reprimanded for failing to disclose a 2007 drunken driving conviction.

U-T San Diego says the state medical board chided David Chao earlier this month, ordering him to sign up for an ethics program and a course in medical record-keeping.

However, the board didn't restrict his license.

Chao applied to become a qualified medical evaluator for worker's compensation cases in 2008 and 2010. Chao wrote on the state forms that he had no past convictions related to his practice.

Chao says he answered honestly and didn't think his driving record was related to his practice.
