Guzman allegedly conspired with others in a scheme to defraud Medicaid by fraudulently obtaining reimbursements from the Medicaid program for prescription drugs that were not dispensed.

On August 13, 2008, Guzman was arrested pursuant to a federal arrest warrant issued by the Southern District of New York and released on bond. Subsequently, Guzman failed to appear for a court date and a federal arrest warrant was issued by the Southern District of New York on January 16, 2009. Guzman was charged with failure to appear.
