Disabled” Former City Worker Caught Running in Marathon

Prosecutors in San Francisco say a former city worker who claimed to be disabled was arraigned on ten counts of fraud Thursday after she was caught running in a marathon.  The San Francisco Appeal reports 34-year-old Emily Hegner was employed as a public health care worker when she claimed to have injured her back, hip and wrist while on the job.  Authorities say between 2007 and 2010, Hegner claimed she needed a cane to get around, but investigators discovered she had completed a seven-mile portion of a local marathon in April 2008.  The District Attorney’s office says Hegner was in a doctor’s office six days after the marathon, walking with a cane and requesting a handicap permit for her car.  She faces more than nine years in prison.


Dude Gets Run Over by Truck After Exiting Through Moon Roof

A New York man learned a painful lesson about how not to get out of a truck this week.  State police tell the Register-Star that 23-year-old Benjamin Keyser was a passenger in a pick-up truck on a highway outside Chatham, New York when he decided to exit through the moving vehicle’s moon roof.  Police say Keyser immediately lost his balance and fell, sliding down the windshield and the hood before tumbling onto the road, whereupon the truck ran him over.  Investigators say the other three occupants put Keyser back in the truck and drove him to a police station, where he received first aid before being airlifted to Albany Medical Center with a broken femur and other injuries.  A state police spokesman said Keyser had consumed alcohol before the incident and was lucky he didn’t suffer worse injuries.


Hospital Staffer Steals Patient’s Rings to Pay Cable Bill

This week’s Lowlife Award goes to the suburban Chicago hospital worker who pleaded guilty this week to stealing wedding and engagement rings off a deceased patient and selling them so he could pay his cable bill.  The Chicago Sun-Times reports 37-year-old Frederick Tapley was working at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Illinois last July when he stripped the rings off the hand of a deceased 72-year-old woman while moving her body to the morgue.  Prosecutors say Tapley pawned the jewelry and used a portion of the cash to pay his cable bill.  A defense attorney says Tapley later realized he made a mistake and helped police locate the rings.  Tapley pleaded guilty to felony theft and faces up to five years in prison when he’s sentenced later this year.


Bank Robbery Suspect Uses City Bus for Getaway
