Most of us have embellished how sick we actually are when calling out from work on at least one occasion. But Christopher Inserra took embellishing to a whole new level when he collected $31,486 in disability payments for what he claimed was an arm injury.
NJ.com reports that the 31-year-old Port Authority police officer was arrested on charges of mail fraud for collecting payments for over two years on his claimed injury.
During that time, he was going on tours as the lead singer in a punk-rock band, Cousin Sleaze.
What led to the investigation of the claim were pictures posted online from shows in April 2011. The pictures show him performing with his band while he was "repeatedly moving his arms in a punching motion" and "violently flailing his arm in an up-and-down motion," said a criminal complaint.
