The Arkansas Insurance Department reported that a North Little Rock man has been sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty to insurance fraud.
On Oct. 25, Antonio Fowler, 30, pleaded guilty to one count of insurance fraud in Pulaski County Circuit Court.
The charge stemmed from purported hit-and-run accident on July 24, 2012. Fowler was a passenger in a vehicle supposedly involved in the accident at the intersection of Gill and Cantrell in Little Rock. The next day, Fowler sought medical treatment for injuries and filed an injury claim with State Farm Insurance.
Video surveillance obtained from a nearby business in the course of the investigation showed the vehicle was not involved in any type of accident, and pulled to a stop on the side of the road where Fowler and three other individuals exited it.
