He is a dumba s s. Athletes are not allowed to receive IV treatment, unless it is being administered in a hospital or medical facility. To my understanding, that is what he was banned for.

No, athletes can “self administer” IV fluids (legal substance) if it’s 100 ml or less in a 12 hr period. Only if it exceeds this or using an illegal substance must there be a TUE and done so in a hospital/surgery/clinical setting.
