MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman accused of using meth and giving the drug to four other women while in jail has been arrested after failing to show up for a court hearing.

KXMC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1aFM2NP ) Minot police arrested Chelsea Nelson on Friday, a day after she failed to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.

Judge Todd Cresap on Monday set bond at $5,000. Nelson had been released earlier without bond on her promise to appear in court.

Nelson said she plans to apply for a public defender.
