New Jersey news.

According to reports, Alexander Goldinsky, 57, a man from New Jersey was filmed by a surveillance camera simulating a fall, dummy wounds, for which prosecutors said they filed a claim.

Goldinsky filed a complaint between Sept. 1 and Nov. 1, alleging he had been injured after slipping and falling at a Woodbridge Township business, the Middlesex County Attorney's Office said in a statement.

The security cameras showed Goldinsky at his workplace intentionally throwing ice on the floor. In the video, published by the prosecutors, the man was "falling" on the floor near the ice that he projected.

The Randolph-based man works as an independent contractor and was outsourced to work at a Woodbridge company at the time of the incident.

"Fraudulent claims cost everyone and we will aggressively pursue those who illegally handle the system," said Attorney Andrew Carey.

Goldinsky was arrested on January 15 and charged this week with insurance fraud and a false claim.
