Former Madison officer charged with workers' compensation fraud

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, CT (WFSB) -

A former Madison police officer was arrested for workers' compensation fraud.

Robert Zeidenberg, 48, of Woodbridge, was arrested by inspectors from the Workers' Compensation Fraud Control Unit of the Office of the Chief State's Attorney.

Officials said a complaint was filed by the Connecticut Interlocal Risk Management Agency, which provides compensation coverage to towns.

According to the arrest affidavit, Zeidenberg received regular salary while supposedly unable to work due to a work-related injury he suffered in July.

While he was out of work, however, officials said he was seen at a Hamden fitness center lifting heavy weights. His injury supposedly made him unable to drive.

Zeidenberg resigned from the police department in November, according to the warrant.

He was given a court date of Dec. 29.
