A former postal carrier who was receiving worker's compensation payments plead guilty to fraud in federal court after getting caught spinning the "big wheel" on the "Price is Right."

Cathy Wrench Cashwell of Fayetteville, North Carolina was receiving worker's compensation payments after injuring herself on the job in 2004, according to WRAL. Cashwell claimed that she couldn't lift mail trays into a truck due to a 2004 on-the-job shoulder injury, but was questioned in September 2009 when she appeared on "The Price is Right" and spun the "big wheel" twice, using her whole body to move the giant wheel.

An indictment alleges that in August 2010, Cashwell and her husband also went ziplining as part of a Carnival Cruise vacation.

Federal investigators say Cashwell knowingly lied when she wrote on her worker's compensation paperwork in September 2011 that she couldn't stand, sit, kneel, squat, climb, bend, reach or grasp.
