A 'fake doctor' suspected of injecting a woman's bottom with cement, super glue and tyre sealant to give her a more 'shapely' rear has been arrested.
Transgendered woman Oneal Ron Morris is accused of administering the potentially lethal shots to at least one victim.

The 30-year-old, who police say is a man but appears to look like a woman, was detained in Florida for the alleged incident in May 2010.
Miami Gardens Police Department Sargeant William Bamford said Morris first met with the as-yet unidentified victim to discuss the procedure.
He said, "They agreed on the price of $700 (Rs 36,000) which was intended for cosmetic purposes." But instead, police say the victim was given a series of injections containing cement, mineral oil and Fix-A-Flat tyre inflator and sealant.
The incision was sealed with super glue. Shortly after the surgery was carried out, she went on to suffer 'severe complications'.
Bamford said, "A short time later she developed very serious pains in her abdomen, and throughout her body. She imediately realised something was wrong." He said the woman visited two local hospitals, before heading to Tampa General Hospital, where she received treatment.
She had developed an infection of drug-resistant bug MRSA at the wound and also developed pneumonia, but refused to reveal how it had happened. Morris has been charged with practising medicine without a licence and causing bodily harm.
The incident is the latest in a long line of instances where women have suffered complications following illegal bottom enhancement procedures.
