A south Florida man said he was on his way to a job site last summer when his vehicle struck a guardrail. He was injured and collected more than $135,000 on the workers' compensation claim.

Authorities now say Curtis Huff Jr., 50, of Vero Beach, was actually driving to court to stand trial on previous charges, including battery of a law enforcement officer, according to a local news report.

Huff, who was sentenced to time served when his 2018 trial resumed in August, now faces insurance fraud charges for the allegedly false workers' compensation claim, authorities said.

He was released from the Indian River County Jail this week on $20,000 bail and faces a Feb. 15 court appearance.
