Stripper Stripped of Her Disability Check, Charged with Insurance Fraud

Christina Gamble (Quakertown Police Dept.)
QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (CBS/AP) This is Christina Gamble.

The 43-year-old woman claimed she fell and hurt her back while working at a restaurant in 2007 and told a doctor it was difficult for her to stand or change positions.

But somehow she managed to do both while working as a stripper, even as she collected worker's compensation payments, according to the state Attorney General's office.

She may call it a spread eagle, but the A.G. calls it:  insurance fraud.

Officials say Gamble, of Quakertown, Pa., received more than $22,000 in disability benefits, even though she kept on working at C.R. Fanny's Gentlemen's Club and Sports Bar.

Gamble was arraigned Thursday, April 29 on two counts of insurance fraud and one count of theft by deception. She was released on her own recognizance, according to The Express-Times.
