Police arrested Abbey Arthur July 6 for theft by deception and identity theft/fraud while using/possessing identifying information.

She's also charged with violating her probation.

In 2017, she was charged with driving under the influence. Arthur claimed the crash was caused by medication she was on for cancer.

A judge later determined she forged documentation from a cancer center and ruled the scars she said were from the treatments were self-inflicted, saying they "looked like bubble gum was stuck in her wounds."
