Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart is accusing one of his prison employees of making a phony worker's compensation claim.

Dart says surveillance video shows the employee walking through a gate at the time and place he claimed to slip and fall injuring his back.

Sheriff Dart is calling for an overhaul of the county's workers' compensation claim-filing process.

He says the video shows the employee slip slightly as he moves through the gate, but not falling.
