Not So Good Samaritan

Gabriel Leon Hernandez, 33, tried to scam police and his insurance company after he witnessed  a car crash on Sept. 22.  After acting as a good Samaritan, helping out the victims of the accident, Hernandez claimed that the truck involved in his crash had also hit his SUV.  He then allegedly billed his insurance company for more than $20,000 in medical bills he incurred after undergoing shoulder surgery for a pre-existing condition.

He collected $21,184 for his medical bills and $1,254 for alleged damage to his car.

After he was arrested, he still claimed the truck hit him, even though a video of the crash shows that it did not.
