‘Wicked Tuna’ star indicted on federal fraud charges, due in court on Aug. 10

A star of TV’s “Wicked Tuna” has been indicted on federal fraud charges. The indictment says Paul Hebert claimed to be disabled and unable to work while he was catching fish and appearing on the National Geographic Channel reality show. The four-count indictment against the 50-year-old from Gloucester, Massachusetts, was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vermont. It alleges that Hebert accepted a little more than $44,000 in Social Security and Medicaid benefits between 2010 and 2013. Hebert’s attorney, Robert Goldstein of Boston, says his client is innocent. link 15:44
