OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has filed workers’ compensation fraud charges in two separate cases.

Pruitt’s office announced the charges against 30-year-old Nicholas Hurt and 48-year-old James Cramer.

Hurt, of Oklahoma City, allegedly created a false story with co-workers about a broken tooth, saying he was injured at work when in reality his broken tooth was the result of an air-soft gun pellet that was shot while the workers were off the clock.

Cramer, a Tulsa resident, allegedly claimed he injured his right foot on the job when he actually injured it by stepping in a pothole outside a Tulsa club.
