Dark side of the health care system?
Police say the 53-year-old man, from Monticello, Minn., went to St. Cloud Hospital for treatment April 20. He claimed he was Pink Floyd singer-guitarist David Gilmour, and that he didn't have health insurance. He was treated and released - but not before signing an autograph.
The St. Cloud Times says hospital security was suspicious about the man's identity and his medical records were flagged. When the man returned for more treatment several days later, he was confronted by police.
That's when he admitted he wasn't David Gilmour, after all.
The man was booked into the Stearns County Jail on a possible charge of theft by swindle.
