The 53-year-old woman was arrested in an apartment building's common area and is being held for a parole board hearing.
Martin garnered national attention when she was imprisoned in Mexico for two years for her alleged role in a fraud scheme.
In early December, the National Parole Board slapped tighter restrictions on Martin for "excessive alcohol consumption."'
