LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock woman was nearly arrested Wednesday after showing up late for court.

Margie Hollingsworth, 60, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Lubbock, is accused of overcharging Medicaid by more than $500,000. She had been indicted in December, but was allowed to remain free until her initial appearance.

When she didn't show up, prosecutors asked a federal magistrate to issue an arrest warrant. Hollingsworth showed up right after the warrant was issued, so the magistrate took back the arrest warrant.

Hollingsworth was allowed to remain free on personal recognizance until her trial date.  Her travel was restricted to Lubbock County and a single county in Colorado.
