WOODBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CIRCA via STORYFUL) – A man was arrested on Jan. 15 in connection with fraudulent insurance claims prosecutors say he filed after staging a “slip and fall” incident at his workplace in Woodbridge Township, N.J.
The man, identified as Alexander Goldinsky, filed claims on Sept. 1 and Nov. 1 seeking reimbursement for ambulance service and hospital treatment, according to a statement released by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office on Jan. 31.
In addition to their statement, the county prosecutor’s office released surveillance footage recorded at the Woodbridge Township workplace where Goldinsky is alleged to have staged the “slip and fall” incident. In the footage, a man is visible filling a cup with ice from a soda fountain, pouring the ice on the ground, and then laying down next to the mess. He remained on the ground until he was found by colleagues.
