In November 2012, Matthew Scheidt, 18, was sentenced to a year in prison after he posed as a physician assistant, wearing scrubs and a stethoscope and helping treat patients at a hospital in Florida. He’s also been arrested for impersonating a police officer (he allegedly pulled over an undercover cop and told him to fasten his seatbelt).
