(CBS/AP) BABYLON, N.Y. - Raymond Roth, a man suspected of faking his own drowning at a New York beach in a scheme to collect on a life insurance policy, was arrested Wednesday at the hospital where he was receiving psychiatric treatment.

Roth, 47, will be arraigned in a Long Island courtroom later Wednesday, New York State Park Police Capt. Bruce Marx said. He was arrested after spending about 10 days in a Long Island hospital for psychiatric treatment.

Roth's attorney said he will plead not guilty. The exact charges were not immediately announced.

Roth was reported missing by his son on July 28 at Jones beach. Authorities conducted a search for several days that cost tens of thousands of dollars.

His son, Jonathan Roth, was arrested last week. Court documents allege the pair conspired to get more than $50,000 in life insurance money. He was released on bail Tuesday.
