Pa. woman faces charges after authorities say she worked as stripper while on worker's comp

QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman is facing insurance fraud charges after authorities say she worked as a stripper while collecting worker's compensation payments. The state Attorney General's office said 43-year-old Christina Gamble, of Quakertown, collected thousands of dollars in insurance payments while working at C.R. Fanny's Gentlemen's Club and Sports Bar.

According to a complaint, Gamble 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. Authorities say she received more than $22,000 in disability benefits.

Gamble was arraigned Thursday on two counts of insurance fraud and one count of theft by deception and released on her own recognizance.
