WOODBRIDGE, NJ — A New Jersey man was arrested after he allegedly faked a slip and fall so he could file an insurance claim.

Alexander Goldinsky, 57, was caught on video throwing ice on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace and then doing a “a fake slip and fall,”  Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said.

He is next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7.
