FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A U.S. Postal Service employee from eastern North Carolina who was seen spinning the Big Wheel on TV’s “The Price is Right” even though she had said she could not deliver the mail has pleaded guilty to workers compensation fraud.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office told The Fayetteville Observer (http://bit.ly/15MWfjy ) that Cathy Wrench Cashwell pleaded guilty earlier this week before a U.S. magistrate in Greenville. She’ll be sentenced later.
The Fayetteville woman had filed for continued pay after she said she suffered pain in her right shoulder, arm and neck while loading mail trays into her work vehicle in 2004.
Cashwell said she could not reach, climb or grasp, among other physical problems.
But she appeared on the game show Sept. 23, 2009, where she spun the wheel twice.
Prosecutors also cited three other examples.
