A 57-year-old New Jersey man has been arrested and charged with insurance fraud after he was caught on CCTV allegedly orchestrating a fake fall at work. 

An investigation carried out by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office found that Alexander Goldinsky purposely threw ice “on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace, placed himself on the ground, and waited until he was discovered.”
