Default Wicked Whoops!

Per the Gloucester Daily Times:
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A star of TV's "Wicked Tuna" has been indicted on federal fraud charges. The indictment says Paul Hebert claimed to be disabled and unable to work while he was catching fish and appearing on the National Geographic Channel reality show.
The four-count indictment against the 50-year-old from Gloucester was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vermont. It alleges that Hebert accepted a little more than $44,000 in Social Security and Medicaid benefits between 2010 and 2013.
The indictment says that while claiming disability, Hebert was "capable of arduous physical labor." Beginning in October 2010, it says, "he earned money through fishing and later through his television work."
Hebert's attorney, Robert Goldstein of Boston, says his client is innocent.
Hebert is due in court on Aug. 10.

That's really disappointing to read. He's always crying about "putting food on the table for his daughter". I have zero tolerance for bottom feeders.

No bueno.. While I feel for anybody trying to make a living, this is fraud. Was he also collecting worker's comp??
Seems like a straightforward guy in the show, not too bright to become a TV star on a boat while sucking the govt titty.

I think the deckhand that worked on the Wizard, and robbed banks with no mask at the same time, just may have him beat in the stupid department.

What a dirtbag. I hate people that are cheating the system. How did he think he wouldn't be caught while filming the TV show?

OMG ain't that the truth! I cannot stand the guy, his stupid assed laugh is so damn annoying that I have to mute the TV whenever he is on. How many different boats is the guy going to work on?

Serves him right that he got caught. I mean how stupid can you be, you are on national TV!

I'm actually surprised he was actually caught. To SS your just a number and they deal with millions of cases. I'm guessing someone who does not like him so much knew he was getting disability and turned him in. Sad part is there are millions and millions more doing the same thing.

Something isn't right...! He's been on tv for a long ass time and if this was cut and dry, they would have brought charges against him after the first season.
