Updated: Marco doctor who ran for city council charged with assault on wife, teen

— Former Marco Island City Council candidate Andrew Martin Guidry, 47, of the 200 block of Apple Lane in Naples, was arrested Sunday night following an argument with his 25-year-old wife and a 14-year-old girl, Collier County Sheriff’s deputies reported. Guidry, who has a history of battery arrests, according to reports, is a well-known physician on Marco Island and in Naples.

Guidry has successfully disputed his other arrests and told the Daily News on Thursday that his version of events in this case is completely different than what is contained in police reports.

Deputies were on their way to a report of a physical dispute at Guidry’s home about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, but before getting within one mile of the house, they met up with the crying, shoeless teen victim, according to reports.

The young witness told police that Guidry “went crazy.”

The argument between Guidry and his wife began, she said, when his wife accidentally crashed her Ford Explorer into a gate at the home.

Guidry says he got so upset because he saw his wife's car moving with the kids in it in no driver.

When Guidry came charging out at the two women, they decided to hide in the family Ford Explorer to escape him, according to reports. He banged on the glass with his fists. Then his wife drove the vehicle through the grass around the house. However, once they got back around, he had blocked the only exit with his truck, according to reports.

Guidry’s wife got out of the Explorer to get clothes from the house, but when she did, she told police that Guidry pushed her in a “rage” with both hands and got in the driver’s seat, according to reports.

According to the report, the teen witness attempted to escape from the slow moving vehicle, but Guidry pulled her back by the hair and shirt.

Reports said she was only able to run away after escaping from Guidry.

She then “ran for her life down the roadway where she met police,” according to reports.

She was “so afraid that she ran out of her shoes,” deputies said.

Guidry's version of what happened is completely different from the reports.

Guidry said he saw the car moving with his 2-year-old and 3-year-old daughters in the back seat without being in their car seats.

He began yelling very loudly, he said, because he didn’t understand why his wife was standing out on the side of the road as the car with the kids inside was rolling into the driveway.

Guidry said that he ran over to stop the Explorer and may have touched the teen when he put it in park but never grabbed her. He said he never moved his truck to block the Explorer and didn't push his wife.

When police arrived, Guidry said they wouldn't listen to him.

Guidry’s wife said she was so afraid because of previous abuse, according to reports.

Deputies said Guidry smelled of alcohol and urinated on himself while speaking to them. He was charged with domestic battery and assault.

Previous battery charges filed against Guidry in Collier County over the years were disposed.

In his most recent case, he avoided a misdemeanor conviction in December involving his arrest in July 2009 on a soliciting prostitution charge after a female patient said he offered a free medical procedure in exchange for sex. He successfully completed a three-month pretrial diversion program that required him to do 100 hours of community service, undergo a psychological evaluation and follow its recommendations.

This guys is nothing but trouble. 2 associates dead, beats his wife, sexually harasses clients, hurting a teen and foreclosures. Sounds like the judge needs to send this loser a message and send him away for a while. Lets see him try his crap in jail.

Guidry seems to have a drinking problem. If our celebrities and politicians can get rehab instead of jail when they run afoul of the law, then why not our doctors too?

Most twenty five year old women think a forty seven year old guy is too old for them.

WOW! Must be a slow day for the Marco Snooze.
This happened five days ago and it's just making headline news today? Someone from the city council must have pointed it out to the Snooze paper, the council is still interested in his property for another new building.

One more thing. How lomg due we have to read about the dumb %^$ who applied for a job, and got arrested for stealing a cell phone.
Why not write about the store employee that was threatened with her life at knife point at the same store by the boyfriend of the thief who stole the cell phone.
This happened Tuesday night, but probably won't make the paper until Saturday.

Sometimes there is a lag between arrests and when they appear in print. Also, the Marco Eagle is not a daily paper, so we publish items at our first opportunity.

If I'm not mistaken, the SunTimes is just a weekly paper and had the story online the day after it happened. Not so with the Eagle.

This is a competent and efficient physician with 20 years left to serve but this bad PR every year can't help. Perhaps he needs a specialist.

There is nothing about this guys that says competent. Control freak with a Rx pad is the thing this guys knows. Dr. G is about to examine his dead career.

I know Dr. Guidry is a DogPile.

However, these fine sentiments have moved me to make an appointment for Dr. G for a medical and mental check-up....

...In Klabautermann name.

Is there anyone with a appropriate edition of Rosetta Stone that can translate this into English?

I for one definitely disagree and don't want to see klabautermann be deported to to Golden Gate City.

His ample, energetic, if inscrutable posts afford a high degree of cross-cultural enlightenment.

Then, of course, there is the amusement factor....

this guy scared the hell out of me when I went to him years ago. He misdiagnosed me as I was coughing up blood. What horrible doctor and citizen. I never returned. He felt up a friend of mine as well. WHY he was practicing all these years is beyond me. He's a doctor...not a blasted cashier. He had lives in his hands!
