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 (https://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.

Corrections officials in the town of New England ordered an investigation last fall into possible drug use by inmates at the Dakota Women’s Correctional Rehabilitation Center. Authorities allege that Nelson and the other women tested positive for meth during the investigation.
