Megan "Monster" Hawkins answers questions from a Bee reporter about the Netflix show “Jailbirds” in a jail interview on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 in Sacramento. Hawkins was released from jail on show, but was arrested again in May.

A woman featured on the Netflix show “Jailbirds” was arrested Friday by Grass Valley Police Department and faces several charges related to drug possession.

Police approached Rachel Medlin, a 23-year-old from Nevada County, in the parking lot of a closed business after a resident reported an apparent drug dealing between a vehicle Medlin was in and a second vehicle, according to a Facebook post by the department.

Medlin, who’s on Sacramento County probation, allegedly had heroin and drug paraphernalia, according to police. She was booked about 2 p.m., with charges including possession of controlled substance paraphernalia and possession of a narcotic controlled substance. She also had an outstanding arrest warrant, according to the department.

“On the way to jail, Medlin was proud to tell officers of her brief cameo on the hit show, identifying the specific episode and the time stamp of her appearance,” read the department’s Facebook post. “We couldn’t help but verify her story and it seems to check out.”
