Alexander Goldinsky, a 57-year-old New Jersey man has been charged with insurance fraud after a surveillance camera caught him throwing ice on the floor at his workplace and seemingly staging a dramatic fall.
He has also been harged with one count of theft by deception, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
In a video released by the department, Goldinsky is seen looking around before tossing ice on the floor of his company’s break room.
He then stands over the ice for a few seconds, before taking a rather deliberate tumble to the ground. He then filed a false insurance claim for the ambulance service and treatment he received at a local hospital for his injuries.
Goldinsky, an independent contractor from Randolph, New Jersey, was subcontracted to the Woodbridge company when he staged the incident, the department added.
