Idiot Gets Busted For Impersonating Members of Pink Floyd and Rush

Last week, a Minnesota man was charged with fraud after attempting to impersonate legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmore and Rush axeman Alex Lifeson.  According to the complaint, Phillip Michael Shaeffer racked up over $35,000 in medical bills at a hospital in St. George, Utah.

The man underwent three separate procedures at the Dixie Medical Center.  He posed as Gilmore during his first two treatments, then posed as Lifeson for another.  He might have gotten away with it had he not posed for pictures and signed autographs during his visits.

After his third procedure, hospital employees noticed some “inconsistencies” in the statements he gave doctors.  Shaeffer was charged with two felony counts of communication fraud back in July.  After failing to appear in court last week, prosecutors discovered that he is currently serving time for unrelated charges in New Mexico.
