Many people have called in sick to work when they were perfectly fine and just wanted the day off. Some might even be so calculating as to fake an injury and claim workers' compensation benefits for months, or years. But how many would be so brazen as to show -- on national television -- how fit they actually are?
That's exactly what former North Carolina postal worker Cathy Wrench Cashwell has admitted to doing. On Monday, Cashwell pled guilty to fraud in connection with a workers' compensation claim that she filed in 2004. Cashwell had claimed that a shoulder injury prevented her from lifting mail trays into trucks for the United States Postal Service and, as a result, was collecting benefits since 2005. Then in 2009 she appeared on the game show "The Price is Right," where she used her whole upper body -- shoulders included -- to spin the show's famous "big wheel," twice. In what seems to be another brilliant move, she also posted a photo on her Facebook page that showed her riding a zipline, according to the indictment filed against her.
