Police in Miami Beach recently nabbed Maria Elizabeth Chrysson, also known locally as the “Botox Bandit,” for not paying for over $4000 worth of liposuction treatments at a south Florida plastic surgery center.
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Chrysson was writing bad checks to cover for the treatments and even walking out of the office without paying on a couple of occasions. She was arrested at a Latin café in Miami Beach…complaining about a “bad hair day,” Chrysson was especially worried about how her mug shot would appear.
Chrysson’s lawyer, Daniel Lurvey, says “We were in the process of making restitution when the arrest occurred. We will continue to attempt to resolve the matter of the alleged victim.”
The infamous “Botox Bandit” has been charged three counts of grand theft and one count of scheming to defraud.
In addition to the arrest, Chrysson is also being investigated for a similar situation at a plastic surgery center in Ft. Lauderdale where it’s alleged she walked out and neglected to pay a $3300 bill for 50 Botox injections.
A Miami-Dade judge has ordered Chrysson to remain under house arrest and wear and ankle monitor until her trial.
The “Botox Bandit” was notoriously more concerned with appearances than with the seriousness of the charges according to officers. She inquired several times about logging into her Facebook page to see if anyone knew she had been arrested.
Of course, we do like to help women like Chrysson look and feel their best but please, we do prefer customers who pay their bill and are upfront with us. We hope Ms. Chrysson can seek help for her troubles and the legal system is able to obtain compensation for our colleagues’ services.
