Was The "Doctor" Really Unconscious?

Was he a doctor? Did he really have patients he had to see in Kentucky? We'll find out soon enough whether his 'story' holds water. But the passenger who was hauled off the plane for not obeying the airlines orders might also have faked being unconscious when he hit his lip on an armrest. If he were really unconscious would he have been giving his expensive smart phone the "death grip"? Look at the pic. Email me your thoughts.
