Tamburino Talks Law: Wisconsin Pharmacist Charged in Vaccine Case

A Wisconsin pharmacist convinced the world was “crashing down” told police he tried to ruin hundreds of doses of coronavirus vaccine because he believed the shots would mutate people’s DNA, according to court documents released Monday.

Police north of Milwaukee, arrested Advocate Aurora Health pharmacist Steven Brandenburg last week following an investigation into the 57 spoiled vials of the Modern vaccine, which officials say contained enough doses to inoculate more than 500 people. Charges are pending.

A detective wrote in a probable cause statement that Brandenburg, 46, is an admitted conspiracy theorist and that he told investigators he intentionally tried to ruin the vaccine because it could hurt people by changing their DNA.

Misinformation around the COVID-19 vaccines has surged online with false claims circulating on everything from the vaccines’ ingredients to its possible side effects.

What are the full scope of charges Brandenburg could face related to tampering with COVID-19 vaccine? Hear my full take by watching the video below.
