(5:30 PM, Sunday, March 18, 2018) – Dede Evavold was arrested this afternoon at her home in St. Cloud, Minnesota on an outstanding warrant that was issued last week for contempt of court.
The warrant was issued last Wednesday after Evavold ignored a previous court order which ordered Evavold to “remove ALL blogs/postings, social media postings, or internet postings” about David Rucki, his children, and other members of the Rucki family which violate an Harassment Restraining Order.
