The state Department of Insurance said Tuesday that Shawna Lynn Palmer claimed she fractured a toe while working at a supermarket.
A doctor issued her crutches and an orthopedic shoe, and she collected workers' comp. However, the agency says in a release that Palmer was later videotaped walking with no discomfort while competing to become Miss Toyota at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
Jail records show Palmer was arrested Friday in Riverside on three felony counts of defrauding an insurance company. She was released on $5,000 bail. Efforts to reach Palmer for comment were unsuccessful.
