Elk Grove Man Pleads Guilty to Workers Comp Fraud
Posted August 22nd, 2014 @ 1:46pm by KFBK News

An Elk Grove man has pleaded guilty to felony workers compensation fraud.

Robert Sallie, 67, was injured in September 2012 as he was loading an exercise machine while working as a garbage truck driver for the city of Folsom.

When he looked away, the exercise machine fell and the handle hit him on the head.

Sallie filed a workers' comp claim that paid him two-thirds of his weekly salary.

He continued to complain of headaches and dizziness.

But Folsom city investigators obtained surveillance video that showed Sallie driving, bending over and going to Starbucks without any signs of dizziness.

He has been ordered to pay $28,000 in restitution to the City of Folsom.
