According to authorities, Goldinsky is an independent contractor who operates under the company name All Gold Industries. When the incident occurred Goldinsky was subcontracted to perform work at a company in Woodbridge.
Police arrested Goldinsky on Jan. 15th following an investigation by Detective Sean Sullivan of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. It was determined that between September 1, 2018 and November 1, 2018, Goldinsky filed a false insurance claim for the ambulance service and treatment he received at a local hospital for injuries he claimed he sustained at a business located in Woodbridge Township.
The investigation revealed that Goldinsky purposely threw the ice on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace, placed himself on the ground, and waited until he was discovered.
Officials say Goldinsky was released on a summons and his initial court appearance is scheduled for February 7th in New Brunswick Superior Court.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Goldinsky are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The investigation is active and continuing.
