New York Port Authority Officer Accused of Insurance Fraud

June 26, 2013

A Port Authority police officer has been charged with insurance fraud for claiming he was disabled while moonlighting in a rock band.

Authorities say Christopher Inserra defrauded the AFLAC insurance company and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

According to an indictment unsealed Monday, the alleged fraud occurred between June 2010 and March 2012.

The indictment says Inserra reported a debilitating injury while on duty to “the lower bicep and elbow region of his right arm.”

But authorities say he regularly performed with the band.

They say investigators videotaped Inserra “using his right arm in a manner that was inconsistent with his claimed injury.”

He declined to comment as he left the courthouse.
