One of the doctors for Micahel Jackson named in the Houston search warrant released Monday refused to give the singer Diprivan, his attorney told

Dr. Allan Metzger is the doctor who turned down Jackson says his lawyer Harland Braun. "Michael Jackson asked my client, Dr. Metzger for Diprivan in April 2009," Braun told 'Dr. Metzger told

him that he wouldn't give it to Michael. Dr. Metzger turned Michael Jackson down."

Lethal doses of propofol, the same drug as Diprivan, were found in Jackson's system.

Braun told "Dr. Metzger has fully cooperated with authorities. We have turned over all of Dr. Metzger's records to the LAPD.  "Dr. Metzger did give Mr. Jackson a prescription for a mild sleeping pill in April 2009, because Michael was complaining of not sleeping.

"Dr. Metzger treated Michael in 2003, and spoke to him by phone in 2008 and 2009, only two times. The last time that Dr. Metzger saw Michael was the April 2009 visit to Michael's home, and that was when he said no to Michael's request for Diprivan."
