Criminal summons dismissed against NC Powerball winner
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. — A criminal summons has been dismissed against Marie Holmes, the $188 million Powerball winner from North Carolina, according to WECT.
The summons was dropped when the woman who accused Holmes of making threatening and harassing phone calls failed to appear in court Friday.
According to WECT, the summons alleged that Holmes threatened to “inflict bodily harm” on Lorna Marlowe.
Holmes won $188 million after buying one of three winning Powerball tickets on Feb. 23, 2015.
