Jason Dross of Celina, Ohio was receiving worker’s compensation since he claimed his injuries were too severe to get any job that would require him to lift more than 10 pounds. Unfortunately for Jason, he was caught on undercover video bench pressing more than 500 pounds!
Jason Dross pleaded guilty to workers’ compensation fraud after investigators with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation captured the undercover video at the Celina YMCA.
Dross was receiving non-working wage loss, which is payable to injured workers who are unable to find suitable employment, according to a release.
The Special Investigations Department caught Jason on doing his impressive bench pressing at a local YMCA. Now he is facing serious punishment for defrauding the system.
He was sentenced to nine months in jail, suspended for three years of community control under the condition that he maintain employment and pay restitution in the amount of $31,736.98.
