‘Wheel of Fortune’ could land worker in jail

A North Carolina postal worker could wind up working in a prison mail room after pleading guilty to workers’ compensation fraud. Her problems began when former co-workers spotted her on the television game show “Wheel of Fortune.”

Despite claiming in 2004 that she was unable to lift mail trays into trucks, the woman had no trouble in 2009 spinning the show’s wheel with her allegedly injured arm. The fun kept coming in 2010 when the woman went on a vacation where she zip-lined with her husband.

Yet in 2011, she filed a statement that “her injuries hindered her ability to bend, reach, grasp, sit, or engage in other activities.”

The post office and its workers’ compensation carrier investigated and de­­­cided to challenge her benefits claim. Confronted with the investigation’s findings, she pleaded guilty to workers’ compensation fraud. She will be sentenced in September.
