Man Who Posed As David Gilmour Arrested

David Gilmour

I don’t know who I could pose as, because I don’t really resemble anyone famous. I could likely get away with telling people I was a Rockefeller, but I’d be a horrible con artist.

Reports claim a man has been accused of pretending to be a member of Pink Floyd while staying at a Minnesota hospital, where he racked up more than $100,000 in unpaid medical bills.

Wild, right? He even signed autographs while he was in the hospital.

Police arrested a 53-year-old Monticello man, who sought treatment at St. Cloud Hospital on April 20.

He claimed he was David Gilmour and that he didn’t have health insurance; he was treated and released because, well, when someone from one of the greatest bands to ever exist needs your assistance, you fucking help him.

Hospital security — who were probably Pink Floyd fans — became suspicious of the man, and his medical records were flagged.

When he returned for follow-up treatments, police confronted him and he admitted he was just an ordinary man, like you and me.

The man was booked into the Stearns County Jail on a possible charge of theft by swindle.
