Race in high heels for Hannah Montana tickets trips Conn. man collecting workers comp

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ” Prosecutors say a video shows a Connecticut correction officer running a 40-yard-dash in women’s clothing and high heels ” at a time he had claimed he was too injured to work.

Garrett A. Dalton of Naugatuck has been charged with workers compensation fraud. He’s accused of taking part in a radio station’s contest for Hannah Montana concert tickets last year. Not only did he have to dress in drag but he had to carry an egg on a spoon.

Authorities were alerted after someone saw Dalton in a TV news report. Prosecutors say the 41-year-old collected more than $5,000 in workers’ compensation after he reported a work-related injury in June.



Court documents do not list an attorney for Dalton, and his phone number is unlisted. And no, he didn’t win the contest.
