The New York Daily News reports:
This bro’s got issues. A federal judge has signed an order for a psychiatric exam for convicted Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli, just days after yanking his $5 million bail, court records show.
Brooklyn Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto signed off on the test for the 34-year-old on Tuesday, according to court records. The reason for the exam and who requested it remains a mystery, as the motion is sealed and not available to the public.
Matsumoto ordered Shkreli held without bail on Sept. 13, after he posted a screed on Facebook offering a $5,000 bounty for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair. He insisted the Facebook post was a joke, and wrote a letter apologizing to the court, but the judge wasn’t swayed.
Shkreli is being held in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, not Rikers as some outlets initially reported. The MDC warehouses inmates bound for federal prison and Rikers does the same for those headed for state prison.
