Remember when you were a kid and you would pretend to be sick by holding the thermometer to the lamp or pouring corn chowder into the toilet only to have your mom see right through your ruse and send your lying behind to school? Well this story is just like that…except much worse.

Over in New Jersey, Police arrested a 57-year old man who they say faked a slip and fall to collect insurance money. The authorities aren’t legally allowed to say he faked it for sure until his trial…but unless he was trying to get an in-office game of Slip-N-Slide going, it’s pretty clear what’s going on. The authorities said the sub-contractor can be seen dumping ice onto the floor before laying down and waiting for help. He then filed an insurance claim for hospital treatment. It’s a shame the unnamed gentleman didn’t see the camera while laying down there otherwise he could’ve avoided the insurance fraud and theft by deception charges he is currently facing. Take a look at the entire scheme below!
