The Marshals Service acted on a tip and Roberts was taken into custody without incident.
She is expected to be back in Lubbock County within the week.
An arrest warrant was issued for Roberts after she did not report to prison earlier this month.
Last year, she plead guilty to Intoxicated Manslaughter and Intoxicated Assault from an October 2010 car accident that killed one person.
Roberts was a student at Texas Tech at the time.
