And Barbara Mae Potter’s return will apparently be accompanied by a hefty price tag.

Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece said Potter’s transfer out of the Washington County, Tenn., Detention Center Wednesday afternoon came after she was admitted to the Johnson City Medical Center on Monday.

“The paperwork that we got stated that the reason for admission was headaches,” Reece said. “They have cleared her. They’ve done stress tests, MRIs and everything.”
