It's not a good look when you're spotted getting into your vehicle the same day, once in a wheelchair, and then once walking to the door while carrying your leftovers from a local restaurant.

Bowling ball hitting its target.

This kind of reminds me of those guys faking back issues to get workman's comp but they are still in the bowling league with no back issues at all. Sorry but I'm not trying to pick on bowlers but I knew of a guy in my old league I was on who got caught faking a back problem.

How Did the Michigan Man Defraud the V.A.?

According to WOOD, the 53-year-old man Joseph Scott Gray went to the Battle Creek VA Medical center and showed up in a wheelchair. Gray then claimed he has not walked in 10 years and had not been able to use his left hand. If you take a look at the picture at the top of the page, he's carrying his take-out in his left hand.

It takes someone with a real pair of cojones to attempt to defraud the federal government.

Gray provided false statements to the V.A and stole $250,000 in benefits. On trial, he claimed his medicine caused him to lie to the V.A. and made it to where he couldn't walk one minute but then be able to walk the next. This guy sounds like a politician. He'll probably run for office when he gets out of federal prison in five years.
