A Minnesota man who racked up as much as $100,000 in charges at St. Cloud Hospital claimed to be Pink Floyd singer-guitarist David Gilmour, even signing an autographs for a hospital staffer, the St. Cloud Times reports.
Phillip Michael Schaeffer, 53, of Monticello, went to St. Cloud Hospital on April 20 for treatment and gave the name David Gilmour when he checked in, St. Cloud police said, the newspaper reported. He claimed he didn't have health insurance and was treated and released.
The following day, hospital security staff reviewed security camera footage of the man and compared it to images of the 67-year-old British rocker, the St. Cloud Times reports.
Schaeffer returned four days later, and security tipped police. He was arrested and booked April 24 at the Stearns County Jail on suspicion of felony theft by swindle, although he has not been charged, the newspaper reported.
