A Metairie insurance agent has been arrested on suspicion of filing a fraudulent insurance claim for a car accident.
The state Department of Insurance says 49-year-old Angela Bodenheimer was arrested Friday on one count of insurance fraud and booked into the Jefferson Parish jail.
The department says Bodenheimer wrecked her car and then realized her insurance policy on the vehicle had lapsed. She allegedly created a fraudulent application for insurance with a date for the policy that preceded the accident, then filed a false claim.
The department says Bodenheimer has had an insurance license since May 1986. It will remain active until a six-month suspension takes effect next month. She has 30 days to contest the suspension.
